Asymmetry in some morphological characters of four sparid fishes from Benghazi, Libya
Languages of publication
Asymmetry analyses were conducted on some bilateral characters of four members of the family Sparidae, Boops boops (Linnaeus, 1758), Diplodus anularis (Linnaeus, 1758), Diplodus vulgaris (E. Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1817) and Lithognathus mormyrus (Linnaeus, 1758) which were collected from coastal waters near Benghazi City, Libya. The results indicated that the highest asymmetry level is in the post-orbital length character. Eye lens diameter and eye lens weight exhibited the lowest asymmetry values.
