      Spawning of 32 species of Labridae and 13 species of Scaridae was seen at Enewetak Atoll, Marshall Islands. Most spawned on a reef bisecting the main ocean-lagoon passage which had strong tidal currents. Others spawned on lagoon reefs and in Halimeda beds. Polygynous haremic, lek-like and promiscuous mating systems were found which were species by:   Scientists have discovered a new human-like species in a burial chamber deep in a cave system in South Africa.

They are renowned for the spectacular adaptive radiations that stocked the large lakes of East Africa with more than a thousand species of cichlids in less thanyears.
