The electric organ discharge (EOD) signalling of isolated and of socially interacting Pollimyrus isidori was analyzed. 1. EOD interval histograms of resting animals showed wide ranges with three modes of 12 to 15 ms, of around 92 ms, and of 220 to 230 ms (Fig. 4a). In number and/or position of modes, the P. isidori histograms were clearly different from those shown by four other mormyrid species: Gnathonemus petersii, Mormyrus rume, Brienomyrus niger, Brienomyrus brachyistius. 2. The EOD… CONTINUE READING
