Abstract

We collected weakly electric gymnotoid fish in the vicinity of Manaus, Amazonas, in the Solimoes river (white water). We tried to find out whether Electric Organ Discharges (EODs) are species specific which is essential for their presumed role in recognition of conspecifics and reproductive isolation. We considered at least 43 valid sympatric species, some of them unnamed. All of these displayed ...
