GRADUATE COURSE - EVOLUTIONARY ANATOMY OF FISHES - 2012
This course will introduce students to the morphological diversity of fishes through lectures and laboratory sections, and will also help students learn to approach anatomical problems in an evolutionary context and incorporate the morphology of fishes into their own research. The course will focus on the musculoskeletal system of fishes due to their immense character richness and importance in systematic ichthyology, although other organ systems will also be covered. Specimen and dissection based labs will give students direct experience in observing and studying anatomical systems. Course takes place from 4 -21 June 2012 at the Eastern Shore Lab of the Virginia Institute of Marine Science, College of William & Mary. Instructors are Drs. Eric J. Hilton and Peter Konstantinidis. Application deadline: 15 March 2012. For further information about the course and registration details please visit our website.
