Richard Mayden (Cypriniformes Tree of Life) visits

Category : visitors

Richard Mayden, Professor & Endowed Chair of Natural Sciences, and Chair, Department of Biology, Saint Louis University, Missouri, USA, and has a lab truck named the "Bride of Stinky" or BoSs.

He works on osteological morphology and molecular systematics of North American fish and is visiting with us on 14th and 15th June 2007.

He is also the leader of the Cypriniformes Tree of Life (CTOL) project, which declares this very interesting statement:

"In this initiative, researchers from many countries with a shared passion and in-depth understanding of these incredibly diverse and interesting fishes are investigating their morphological and molecular variation.

Many of the current participants of this long-term project have a history of collaboration, sharing data, specimens, information, and ideas, and are committed to one primary objective - fostering a collaborative and productive academic environment to ensure a rapid advance of our understanding of the biodiversity and systematics of the Cypriniformes.

We, as a group, hold as a fundamental premise that progress towards our mutual goals will be better accomplished in this collaborative venue than through individual researchers both competing for the same resources and possibly duplicating unorganized efforts."
