Photopigment spectral absorbance of Lake Malawi cichlids
Journal or Book Title
JOURNAL OF FISH BIOLOGY
To predict spectral sensitivity, microspectrophotometry (MSP) was used to measure absorbance of photoreceptor cells from 15 species of Lake Malaŵi cichlids. Each fish had one rod and at least three cone pigments. UV-sensitive pigments were common, but spectral sensitivity did not clearly correlate with feeding mode or habitat.
