The Science Museum of Virginia is currently closed to the public so we're taking our popular Lunch Break Science series, sponsored by Bon Secours, online!
Dr. Hilton will provide an overview of the biology of sharks, rays, and other chondrichthyan fishes from the perspective of using preserved specimens from the natural history collections. He’ll also discuss projects involving the anatomy, taxonomy, evolution and general anatomical studies of lamniform sharks, butterfly rays and chondrichthyan fishes.
What: “What Can You Learn from a Preserved Shark” presented by Dr. Eric J. Hilton, Professor of Marine Science, Curator of the Nunnally Ichthyology Collection at VIMS, William and Mary
When: Wednesday, July 15, 12 - 12:45 pm
Where: Zoom meeting in the comfort of your home
