Studying the Evolutionary History of Nile Perch Fishes in Lake Tanganyika, East Africa
The Evolutionary History Lake Tanganyika’s Nile Perch Species, Identify morphometric differences between Nile Perch species in Lake Tanganyika.
Harris International Research Award
Will allow us to develop a clear species description for Lake Tanganyika’s Lates species and assist in answering our overall questions about relative divergence times of these four species.
Morphological measurements will be used to assess morphometric differences between species that match those of the species descriptions. Measurements will complement DNA samples.
