Dr. Ralf Britz, Natural History Museum, London
When: 4-5PM, Wednesday 24th October
Where: WFES, RM119
Dr. Ralf Britz is Fish Researcher in the Department of Life Sciences, Natural History Museum, London and an expert on the comparative anatomy/comparative development, taxonomy and phylogenetic relationships of ray-finned fishes. He is best known for his research on early skeletal development and for clarifying complex homology issues relating to the skeleton through the study of ontogeny. This Wednesday he will present a special photographic and microscopic overview of the rarely seen and little studied eggs and early larval stages of the tropical freshwater fishes that he has successfully reared in captivity over the last 20+ years. If you are interested in fishes then this is the seminar for you but anyone with an interest in vertebrates, development, evolution, microscopy, or photography will not be disappointed.
