Kramer, Bernd (1994) Communication behavior and sensory mechanisms in weakly electric fishes. Advances in the Study of Behavior 23, pp. 233-270.
Teleost freshwater fishes of the orders Mormyriformes (the elephantfishes plus Gymnarchus from Africa) and Gymnotiformes (the knifefishes from South America) are both electrogenic and electroreceptive.
