Bibliography for genera

I have now added a new tab to each genus profile so you can have a list of bibliography for a genus. The report obtained includes references where the genus is treated as whole in any area, like taxonomy, genetics, distribution, behavior, etc (Juan Miguel Artigas Azas)

Affinity groupings for genera

In order to have a better understanding of cichlid genera I have added a tab to each genus profile for showing affinity groups (e.g. herbivorous, cave brooders, etc) to which species in each genus are linked. Affinity groups are classified in several categories (morphology, habitat, feeding, mating, breeding, aquarium and special). I have also added a clickable summary to each genus profile. In addition, the report for general catalog groupings (linked in the left menu of the main catalog page) is now given by genus and not by species. I have done this to give a better picture of genera affinities. We are still working to assign each cichlid species to affinity groups but the advanced work should give a good picture for each species (Juan Miguel Artigas Azas)
