We studied the question of whether or not female choice among variant forms of species-specific male advertising signals, electric organ discharges (EODs), is a factor in preventing panmixy in a parapatric sibling complex of three species of mormyrid fish, inhabiting three parallel rivers in southern Africa. The three species’ EODs are characteristically differentiated in waveform. The Upper ...
