Ross C Langston


I am an Associate Professor of Zoology at the University of Hawaii Windward Community College and adjunct researcher at Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum in Honolulu. My primary research interest is the life-history and population dynamics of coral reef fishes. Most of my research is done in collaboration with Ken Longenecker, also of Bishop Museum. Our work involves a mixture of lab and field work (fish surveys made with SCUBA and closed-circuit rebreathers). Commonly-used lab techniques include histology-based analyses of reproductive maturity and otolith-based estimates of age and growth. Our study areas include Hawaii, Fiji, and Papua New Guinea.
