General Field Sheets
I created a field sheet as a resource for the community of people that is collecting fishes or invertebrates in the Caribbean. Please feel free to use it for your work and share it with anyone who might be interested. If you return the filled out sheets to me, I will put the data into a public database that all of us can use. Click on the link below to download the word file. Please contact me at email@example.com for a version in Spanish.
Fish stocks are maintained in the Aquatic Research Facility of OU (Google Maps: 35.183277°,-97.447701°). Tanks of different sized are available outdoor and indoor in a greenhouse. Stocks can also be maintained in several large outdoor ponds. The greenhouse offers space for experiments. We currently breed around 20 species of livebearing fishes. Contact Ingo (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
Little Fish Room
In this small fish room we run small experiments and prepare individuals for experiments.
For the housing of the cave fish, a darkroom is available. This darkroom is fully equipped for common-garden rearing of up to 100 individual fish.
The Behavior lab provides four experimental setups for the observation and quantification of behavior. The setup includes a computer-mediated individual tracking system, which can be operated from seperate room, as well as interactive playback of video images.
We have conducted field work in the US (mainly Oklahoma and Texas), Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad, and Cuba.
