Join Professor Marc Holderied at bristol Museums’ M Shed for November’s Winter Lecture to discover how moths use acoustic defences and why this can help us in our ever-noisier world.

Invisibility cloaks are fantastic devices in popular culture, featuring in everything from Harry Potter to Star Trek. But something similar can also be found in the natural world. Recent studies in silkmoths (Saturniidae) have revealed that they too have a powerful stealth cloak.
