    About This Project

    Many cetaceans (dolphins, whales, porpoises) have complex, species-specific genitalia, but in most cases we do not know how they fit together during copulation. We plan to place reproductive tissues from naturally deceased cetaceans into copulatory positions, then use CT scans to find the relative locations of landmarks on the penis and vagina. The project will help us assess the coevolution of these tissues.

    Blast off!
