Sarah Steele, a post doc at the University of Iceland, will talk about her thesis research at the University of Toronto / Royal Ontario museum. Including inside details on field work in South America.

 

Abstract: 

The macroevolution of phenotypic traits has largely been studied using the adult phenotype. Phenotypic change through ontogeny has rarely been incorporated as a key component of morphological and ecological differentiation among species. I will give a brief overview of my key research interests examining morphological differentiation of an ecologically diverse group of fishes (Neotropical Cichlids) through ontogeny. I will then give an exciting overview of tropical fieldwork associated with my PhD thesis, using a recent 7 week trip to South America as a model.
