The assignment of dead lambs to a particular cause of death relies in part, on the subjective assessment of lesion severity score s of the meninges, in particular the surface of the brain (Holst 2004). We hypothesise that the range of colours (L*, a* and b*) and their relative vividness (hue) and brightness (Chroma) would differ between lambs dying from different causes of death. Lambs dying from forms of difficult birth should present with different colour values, compared to lambs dying from starvation or other, largely environmental causes.
