Above is a link to an article I had for a while. Don't think it's a great article, but worth the read if you are interested in the evolution of petroschromis sp. found in lake Tang vs. Petrotilapia sp. found in lake Malawi.

Generally comments: I wish they did some DNA testing to see if there is any evolutionary connection. With the evidence of DNA, IMHO, the conclusions would be much stronger. However, I don't want to take away form the simple method of geometric morphometric technique. It's my understanding that Darwin himself used this method to postulate the famous theory found in his book "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection.
