    In terms of number of species, perciform (perch-like) fishes are one of the most diversified groups of modern vertebrates. Within this group, the family Cichlidae is best known for its spectacular adaptive radiation in the great lakes of East Africa. The molecular tool kit used in the study of...

    A reproductive analysis of 1 225 specimens of Poeciliopsis gracilis obtained through monthly samples from Coatetelco, a tropical shallow lake in Central Mexico, was made. There was an evident sexual dimorphism, including a difference in body size at the onset of reproduction. Sex ratio deviated...
