Dr. Romero publishes essay on typological thinking
Dr. Aldemaro Romero, Biology, recently published an essay on typological thinking, a philosophical view of biology. The essay, "Typological thinking strikes again," was published in the most recent issue of the prestigious journal Environmental Biology of Fishes.
