New research on the genetics of behaviour and biomechanics in fishes at the BMSC

Multiple body parts must work together to accomplish a task. For example, the coordination of visual and locomotor systems is critical for animals that hunt for food. For fishes, both swimming and feedings systems must work together to  capture prey. How this process impacts survival, or how it differs depending on ecological conditions, is…
