Cooperative study on the ecology of lake tanganyika east central africa between japanese and african scientists with special reference to mutual interactions among fishes



Cooperative study on the ecology of lake tanganyika east central africa between japanese and african scientists with special reference to mutual interactions among fishes



Physiology & Ecology Japan 23(2): 119-128



Freshwater environments are usually unstable during geological periods. Fishes in rivers and lakes are so-called generalists and interactive food and/or habitat segregations are observed among them, especially in temperate regions. It is interesting, therefore, what kinds of interaction are there is exceptionally stable bodies of water in tropical regions. Since 1977, cooperative study has been done on the ecology of Lake Tanganyika between Japanese and African scientistis, and many interrelations among fishes has been observed. Cooperations or mutualisms are especially evident among species utilizing the same or very similar resources, and its allows the co-existence as well as the speciation of many species having different feeding manners on the same resources.
