Is intraspecific variation in diet and morphology related to environmental gradients? Exploring Liem's paradox in a cichlid fish

Binning, Sandra; Chapman, L J

Description

Interspecific studies have demonstrated that trophic morphology and ecology are not always tightly matched: a phenomenon rarely reported at the intraspecific level. In the present study, we explored relationships among diet, morphology and the environment in a widespread cichlid fish, Astatoreochromis alluaudi (Pellegrin 1904), from 6 sites in southern Uganda to test for evidence of eco-morphological matching at the interdemic level. Previous studies of Astatoreochromis alluaudi have...[Show more]
