About the Lab

The central goal of the TAMU Systematic Ichthyology Laboratory is to document the taxonomic, anatomical, ontogenetic, and genetic diversity of teleost fishes. The morphological diversity of teleosts is unparalleled by any other group of vertebrates. We investigate this diversity not only to further our understanding of vertebrate anatomy in general but also to discover novel characters to advance our understanding of the phylogenetic relationships of select groups of teleost fishes. Our investigations frequently lead to the discovery of previously unrecognized taxonomic diversity and one of the broader aims of the TAMU Systematic Ichthyology Laboratory is to document this diversity through the description of new species.
