Last day to sign up to attend #SummerSchool!
(Don't worry, we won't be shaming you if you sign up and can't make it or anything—this is just so we can send you the link to the video conference room instead of publishing them and getting the chat spammed or something)
All the presenters are amazing and we'd love to have your feedback or even just your listening ears :)
Also, I'm presenting and I want mine to have a good audience haha
See you at #SummerSchool!

Ripe bananas glow blue in ultraviolet light.
Like many fruit, unripe bananas are green because they're still full of chlorophyll. In bananas, that chlorophyll breaks down into a UV reactive pigment.
Some birds and insects are tetrachromats, and can see UV light. To them, bananas which are ripe and ready to eat are super obvious, and easy to see from the air.
