A University of Tampa biology professor will be featured Tuesday night on an episode of the History Channel’s “Evolve” series at 10 p.m.

Dan Huber, visiting assistant professor of biology, will be featured in an episode titled “Jaws,” which takes a look at the physical adaptations of the jaws of sharks and other predators.

Huber’s research interests have focused heavily on sharks’ “bite force,” – their hunting performance – offering new insights into the animal’s evolutionary habits and capabilities.

The episode will include an interview with Huber as well as highlights of his research.

More information about the “Jaws” episode is available on the History Channel’s Web site. Check local listings for channel information.
