Abstract Interspecific differences in the ability to excrete urea in four gobiid fishes, Mugilogobius abei, M. chulae, M. sp. 1 and M. sp. 2, in response to elevated external ammonia, were compared and set against the phylogenetic relationships of species, following molecular phylogenetic analyses using a portion of mitochondrially-encoded 12S ribosomal RNA and tRNA-Val genes, which were sequenced from five species of Mugilogobius. The resulting tree, based on 710 base pairs of aligned… CONTINUE READING
