Comparative morphology of the mechanosensory lateral line system in a clade of New Zealand triplefin fishes.

Abstract

The mechanoreceptive lateral line system in fishes detects hydrodynamic stimuli and plays a critical role in many fundamental behaviours, including orientation to water currents and the detection of stationary objects, prey and predators. Interspecific variation in lateral line structure may result from a process of functional adaptation, with the… (More)
