Abstract

Phylogenetic relationships between seven elephantfish species from five genera (Mormyridae) that are endemic to southern Africa, and the Nile knifefish of the sister family, Gymnarchidae, were determined using biochemical genetic data, behaviour (the waveforms of the electric organ discharge), morphology, and habitat and food preferences. The results confirmed the existence of an undescribed ...
