A quantitative ecomorphological study was carried out on the sagitta otoliths of Antarctic and Subantarctic nototheniids, a particularly interesting family due to its fast adaptive radiation into different life strategies. We analyzed the otolith shape and size of 18 nototheniids to test the relationship between phylogeny, otolith characters and trophic… CONTINUE READING
