- Fish Ecology - Population Dynamics and Niche Overlap, Fish Systematics - Phylogeny and Cytogenetics, Aquatic Ecology, Estuarine Ecology, Fish and Invertebrate sub-fossils from an archaeological site, Ghazi Shah, Pakistan
The long range activities of this laboratory are to understand the phylogenetic relationships, interactions, and general life histories of both freshwater and marine aquatic organisms. Among the techniques employed are the use of cytogenetics in studies of the interrelationships of monophyletic genera and species, mathematical models for evaluating population dynamics and life histories, and the development of new approaches for the understanding of resource partitioning in aquatic environments. We will also be exploring the use of high-end computer graphics for studies of the comparative morphology of aquatic organisms, and to develop virtual models for studies of form and function.
