Kramer, Bernd (1990) Sexual signals in electric fishes. Trends in Ecology & Evolution 5 (8), pp. 247-250.
Electroreceptive bony fishes of Africa (the Mormyriformes) and South America (the Gymnotiformes) detect and communicate with conspecifics by their continuously discharging electric organs. Laboratory studies of members of each group are beginning to reveal the mechanisms of communicating with and finding mates, offering much scope for future studies of the behavioral ecology of electric fishes.
