Fast & Furious Skull Evolution, 12 p.m., BSEL 101

Dr. Craig Albertson from The University of Massachusetts, Amherst will be our seminar speaker at 12 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, in BSEL 101.

"Fast and furious skull evolution: genetics and adaptation in fishes."

Craig's research focuses on craniofacial ecology, evolution and development in fishes, particularly in the massive adaptive radiations of the East-African rift-lake cichlids, but his lab also uses the zebrafish as a developmental-genetic model and he has explored skull and skeletal evolution in such derived groups as the Antarctic icefishes.
