Vertebrate Zoology Research Expertise
Vertebrate Zoology research includes taxonomic, systematic, evolutionary, biogeographical, conservation and ecological work on vertebrates (animals with a vertebral column and skull).
Vertebrate research at the Canadian Museum of Nature focuses primarily on ichthyology (Canadian and Middle Eastern fishes, freshwater fishes, lampreys, flatfishes and the cod family), but research is also being done on amphibians and reptiles. The museum also does zooarchaeological research on bones from archaeological sites.
Canadian Zooarchaeology is a biannual newsletter produced by passionate researchers at the Canadian Museum of Nature. Created with a Canadian bias, it is devoted to almost anything and everything of interest to zooarchaeologists.
