    About This Project

    Over half of all vertebrate species on Earth are fishes found in South and Central America. Why? We think that adaptation to extreme environments and hybridization both play major roles, and often feed each other. We want to use next-generation DNA technology to probe the genomes of natural hybrids of peacock bass fishes adapted to extreme environments. Understanding these processes is critical for conserving Amazon biodiversity.
