Scientific Illustrator? Part 7!! Senegalese Fishes

After the 6 salmonids, I wasn't sure if I was going to be doing any more scientific illustrations. But sure enough, another one popped up, and this one required work of a significantly simplified style, which was in hindsight very good, as school was just about to begin.

I was commissioned to draw simplified illustrations of 10 Senegalese fish species that have a potential to control the disease schistosomiasis by eating the host snails which carry the disease at one of its life stages. 

Because these are simpler and took much less time, I don't really have any images of the in-process work. 

However, these are going to be published in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene!

This is the research paper: 

Arostegui MC, Wood CL, Jones IJ, Chamberlin A, Jouanard N, Faye DS, Kuris AM, Riveau G, De Leo GA, Sokolow SH. In press. Potential biological control of schistosomiasis by fishes in the lower Senegal River basin. American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
