NPR’s reporter, Rae Ellen Bichell, did a piece on “How animals hacked the rainbow and got stumped on blue“, connecting to some of our work on blue structural color in butterflies.

NPR’s reporter,Flora Lichtman, working for Ira Flatow’s Science Friday, produced a nice video summary of some of our work with the transgenic butterflies.

Our work with transgenic butterflies was the focus of a module on the “molecular biology of butterflies”, part of a larger exhibit held at he Natural History Museum in Lisbon (Borboletas atraves do tempo). The exhibit, which centered on the study and conservation of Iberian butterflies was in Lisbon until December 2007 and is now travelling to other Portuguese cities and countries in Europe.

Work in the lab was also featured in the Discovery Channel and in the Portuguese television series “Geração Cientísta” (Generation Scientist) in 2006, where 26 young Portuguese scientists working throughout the world were interviewed about their work. The aim of the series (13 episodes) was to introduce the “lives of scientists” to the younger generations, to desmystify the scientific profession, and to encourage young people to follow a career in science.

Kendra Robertson’s work on the role of eyespots in female choice was recreated in the first episode of a PBS Nature two-part series “What females want” and “What males are willing to give”. You can watch the Bicyclus clip here.
