Abstract

This is a feature issue devoted to optical phenomena that can be observed in nature, primarily with the naked eye. Many of the papers published in this feature issue are based on presentations given at the “Light & Color in Nature” conference held in June 2010 at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
