Data from: Visual adaptation and microhabitat choice in Lake Victoria cichlid fish

Daniel Mameri, Corina Van Kammen, Ton G. G. Groothuis, Ole Seehausen & Martine E. Maan
When different genotypes choose different habitats to better match their phenotypes, adaptive differentiation within a population may be promoted. Mating within those habitats may subsequently contribute to reproductive isolation. In cichlid fish, visual adaptation to alternative visual environments is hypothesised to contribute to speciation. Here, we investigated whether variation in visual sensitivity causes different visual habitat preferences, using two closely related cichlid species that occur at different but overlapping water depths in Lake Victoria and...
