Cichlid Adventures in Costa Rica
Ron Coleman is an Associate Professor at California State University, Sacramento and teaches courses on Ichthyology (the study of fishes), Fisheries Biology, Animal Behavior and other related topics. In his research, he is interested in the behavior and ecology of fishes, and is particularly interested in parental care in New World cichlid fishes. Each year he spends three weeks in Costa Rica chasing cichlids. The picture for example shows a dramatic relationship between a Tomocichla tuba female with fry that the speaker took in January 2014. Join Dr. Ron this Friday March 7th on another wonderful adventure, and bring a friend.
