Peter Wainwright Explores Fish Evolution and Feeding 

One of the world's leading experts in fish morphology, Peter Wainwright has begun to tie together how the 700 families of fish are related to one another and how they have evolved in their environments. His work focuses on biomechanics of how fish feed and how this has led to their ecology. 

On Tuesday May 9th, 2017, Peter Wainwright will present at the annual Faculty Research Lecture, the highest award presented by the faculty of UC Davis to one of their colleagues. The award ceremony begins at 5:30 pm followed by a reception and Wainwright’s lecture, “Wrasses, Cichlids and Honeycreepers: Will the Real Adaptive Radiation Please Stand."
