LSU ichthyologist lands major grant to study fish family history
Date:11/2/2009

ey didn't simply swim across the ocean. It's basically direct proof that those two landmasses were connected at some point in history."

In addition to supporting this exhaustive taxonomic work, the NSF grant funds student workers, from high schoolers to undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctoral researchers. Chakrabarty plans to identify and train a few Latin American students from areas where he typically collects specimens, as well, in order to train them in the United States and send them back home with the tools necessary for scientific study. Chakrabarty said that local people often recognize species that scientists don't even know about, so by nature they are very good natural historians. Further training, he said, adds to the global scientific collective, as these Latin American countries are awash with biological diversity.

"We want to teach people about their own native fishes. We collect with locals, so we want to bring some students back to learn microscopy, molecular work and other complex skills, to add value to the education they already have," said Chakrabarty. "You can't recognize diversity without being familiar with your own."
