William E. Bemis William E. Bemis

Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
I study the comparative anatomy of living and fossil vertebrates using techniques ranging from dissection and osteology (study of skeletons) to histology and micro-computed tomography (micro-CT). My research focuses on fishes, but I have worked on and am interested in all major groups of vertebrates.
