Electrosensitive Spatial Vectors in Elasmobranch Fishes: Implications for Source Localization

Abstract

The electrosense of sharks and rays is used to detect weak dipole-like bioelectric fields of prey, mates and predators, and several models propose a use for the detection of streaming ocean currents and swimming-induced fields for geomagnetic orientation. We assessed pore distributions, canal vectors, complementarity and possible evolutionary divergent… (More)
