Abstract of Publication

Lippitsch, E., H. Kawanabe, M. Hiro, and M. Nagoshi. 1998. Phylogenetic study of cichlid fishes in Lake Tanganyika: a lepidological approach. Journal of Fish Biology 53: 752-766.  

The phylogeny of the various cichlid lineages in Lake Tanganyika has been investigated applying scale morphology and squamation characters. The monophyly of the established tribes is assessed and evidence is given for their interrelationships as well as their phyletic position within the family Cichlidae.
