Dr. Peter C. Wainwright is Executive Associate Dean for Research & Resources, College of Biological Sciences, University of California, Davis.
Dr. Wainwright oversees the eponymous Wainwright Lab which seeks to study innovation and diversity in fish feeding mechanisms, the phylogenetics and diversification of spiny-rayed fishes (Acanthomorpha), the evolution of coral reef fishes, and adaptive radiation in marine teleosts. Dr. Wainwright has mentored numerous students who have gone on to study cichlids including GCCA Member Sam Borstein.
In order to better understand fish feeding, Dr. Wainwright has conducted numerous studies including high-speed video. In this talk, you will see frame-by-frame how fish feed in never before seen video.
Guests are always welcome at our meetings, however after your third visit we do ask that you officially join the club.
Meetings generally are at 6PM on the second Sunday of the month, unless otherwise noticed, so please check our Events Calendar.
Each meeting is attended by 25-50 people typically. The meeting starts with a welcome from our President and some business affairs may be discussed. We usually ask if there are guests present, raise your hand and tell us what kind of fish you keep!
Following business, there is a short break when you can meet other attendees, take a look at the fish that are available for sales, buy raffle tickets for aquarium goods and see the fish in our Bowl Show.
After the break, a speaker or other program is presented. We bring in speakers from all over the US and other countries. These speakers are usually an expert in cichlids or an aquarium-related topic. The talk usually lasts about an hour.
Following the talk, we announce the raffle winner and begin the auction of fish.
If you like fish or cichlids, you should come to the next meeting.
