EEB Thursday Seminar Series - Fish-ES Chronicles: Exploring Evolution and Systematics in the Anthropocene

with Adela Roa-Varón, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian
Thursday, April 18, 2024
3:00-4:00 PM
1010 Biological Sciences Building Map
This event is part of our ongoing Thursday Seminar Series.

Preview: Numerous factors have contributed to the global decline of many species. To safeguard these species and prevent further losses, it is imperative to deepen our comprehension of taxonomy and evolutionary relationships, thereby establishing effective conservation priorities. Over the past 15 years, I have developed a research program in Fish Evolution & Systematics (Fish-ES) aimed at unraveling the forces driving the diversification and evolution of marine fishes, with emphasis on Gadiformes (codfishes, hakes, rattails, and allies) and other economically significant species. In my presentation, I will showcase several past and ongoing projects incorporating classic and cutting-edge morphological, ecological, geochemical, and genomics techniques. These multidisciplinary approaches can enhance our understanding of the evolutionary histories of complex taxa, offering invaluable insights crucial for their conservation and management.
