Micro-CT Scanning and Evolutionary Biology
To better understand the evolution of skull bones in sculpins and their close relatives, I used micro-CT ("3D x-ray") reconstructions. This allowed me to make detailed measurements of the skull and analyze evolutionary changes of the mouth and gill chambers of these fishes in the context of their ecology for an upcoming publication. I am in the process of uploading the raw CT data to the Open Science Framework, and you can download these and other CT scans from Adam Summers' lab at: https://osf.io/ecmz4/wiki/Fishes/
Mouse-over each image for the species name and a link to download the CT data from OSF.
