    The historic Fishes Exhibition at the Harvard Museum of Natural History in Cambridge reopens to the public on June 2, 2012 after a major makeover. Museum-goers may explore the diversity of fishes from gars to groupers and stonefishes to seahorses. The exhibition will redisplay some long-time visitor favorites including the hammerhead and mako sharks, the massive bluefin tuna, and the prickly porcupine fish, and will also add many new specimens borrowed from the Ichthyology Collections of Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology. Fishes combines abundant real specimens with 3-D models, colorful graphic displays, and an interactive multimedia station profiling the research of faculty, staff, and students in Harvard's Lauder Laboratory. The exhibition re-opening lecture entitled The Grand Diversity of Fishes: Form, Function, and Evolution will be presented by George V. Lauder, Prof. of Biology and Curator of Ichthyology in Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology on Thursday, May 31 at 6 pm.
