Scott Schaefer's research is focused on the systematics, biogeography, and evolutionary morphology of the tropical freshwater fishes of Africa and South America. This research principally seeks to resolve problems in the taxonomy, classification, and nomenclature at multiple hierarchic levels in those fishes that dominate the ecology of tropical riverine systems, notably catfishes and characoids.
