Systematics of Tanganyikan cichlid fishes (Teleostei: Perciformes)
The relationships among 53 genera of Tanganyikan cichlid fishes were analyzed based on internal and external morphological features and a previously proposed classification showed 5 of 12 tribes to be nonmonophyletic.
Evidence of disassortative mating in a Tanganyikan cichlid fish and its role in the maintenance of intrapopulation dimorphism
It is found that the scale-eating cichlid fish Perissodus microlepis exhibited disassortative mating, in which reproductive pairings between lefties and righties occurred at higher than expected frequency.
The Adaptive Radiation of Cichlid Fish in Lake Tanganyika: A Morphological Perspective
In the present review, morphological studies that relate to the adaptive radiation of Lake Tanganyika's cichlids are summarized and highlight their importance for understanding the process of adaptive radiation.
Competition-driven speciation in cichlid fish.
Evidence is provided that competition has taken a key role in the evolution of genetically distinct ecomorphs of the Lake Tanganyika cichlid fish Telmatochromis temporalis and the need to identify ecological processes that impose selection to improve the understanding of speciation and adaptive radiation is highlighted.
A RAD-based phylogenetics for Orestias fishes from Lake Titicaca.
Systematics of Xenotilapia Boulenger, 1899 (Perciformes: Cichlidae) from Lake Tanganyika, Africa
Abstract The phylogenetic relationships among 13 species of the Tanganyikan cichlid genus Xenotilapia and 12 related genera were investigated based on internal and external morphological features.
A new species of Petrochromis (Perciformes: Cichlidae) from Lake Tanganyika
Based on morphological and molecular analyses of a Petrochromis fish (Cichlidae) from the southern end of Lake Tanganyika, this fish is considered a taxonomic species distinct from the six known
