This is a lecture & lab based course this will cover fish anatomy, evolution, and diversity. There are two field trips, one to the New England Aquarium (Dates TBD, tickets provided) and the second to the Charles River to collect some fish (Reading period, weather permitting).

Stacy Farina, Connor White, and I are the Teaching Fellows (TF) for this course.


One of the things we do in the first lab is examine a fish and read the Agassiz Fish Story. As part of a project for the Bok Center, I illustrated this story. So if you want to read it with pictures, here you go.
