Dr Christine Thacker is the fish curator at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

Chris visted to examine and photograph Australian gudgeons for a large-scale study of their relationships and distribution.

She also used the Australian Museum's extensive holdings of shrimp gobies as part of a new study of goby symbiosis and evolution. Results from this visit will be used in conjunction with DNA sequence data to build understanding of gobioid relationships and evolution.

Chris visited the Australian Museum from 26 July to 2 August 2004.
