EEB Tuesday Lunch Seminar: Fantastic fishes and where to find them - using historical natural history data and robots to explore deep sea fish biodiversity
Randy Singer, EEB/UMMZ Collection Manager, Division of Fishes
The deep ocean is frequently assumed to be a homogeneous system lacking the same diverse natural history found in shallower waters. However, as our methods for exploring the deep ocean improve, common assumptions about dispersal, reproduction and behavior are constantly being challenged. With the immense amount of data collected and stored in natural history collections to highlight historical distributions of fishes we can now use these data in concert with modern sampling methods like remote operated vehicles (ROVs) and precision netting to learn more about one of the planets most extreme systems. Join Randy as he takes you on a journey from the highest shelves of museum collections to the extreme depths of the ocean in a quest to learn more about fishes, and where to find them.
