Wild sample individual from Domwe Island, Lake Malawi.Cichlid fishes from East Africa are remarkable for phenotypic and behavioral diversity on a backdrop of genomic similarity. Lake Malawi is home to the most species rich assemblage of African cichlids; as many as 800 - 1000 species are thought to have evolved from a common ancestor in the last 500K More...
