Bratton, Bradford O. and Kramer, Bernd (1988) Intraspecific variability of the pulse-type discharges of the African electric fishes, Pollimyrus isidori and Petrocephalus bovei (Mormyridae, Teleostei), and their dependence on water conductivity. Experimental Biology 47, pp. 227-238.
The electric organ discharge (EOD) of the mormyrid Pollimyrus isidori is a short pulse with three phases: (1) weak head positive (PI); (2) strong head negative (N); (3) weak head positive (P2). 1. At a stable water conductivity (100 pS/cm), which is near the upper end of the natural range in tropical Africa, there was a statistically significant difference between the sexes only in one of five ...
