Opulent Oceans

Join author Melanie L. J. Stiassny, Axelrod Research Curator of Fishes and Professor at the Museum’s Richard Gilder Graduate School, on an epic, oceanic journey, in this third installment of the Natural Histories series. Her fascinating essays, inspired and illustrated by works in the Museum’s 14,000-volume Rare Book Collections, expand on the science and excitement of discovery behind the early histories that shaped the study of the oceans.

A book signing will follow the lecture.
