A monumental reference that provides comprehensive details on the freshwater fishes of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title Certain to stand among the reference books of choice for anyone interested in the continent’s aquatic ecosystems, Freshwater Fishes of North America covers the ecology, morphology, reproduction, distribution, behavior, taxonomy, conservation, and fossil record of each North American fish family. Volume 1 (of three) covers the following North American families of fishes: Petromyzontidae (Lampreys) Dasyatidae (Whiptail Stingrays) Acipenseridae (Sturgeons) Polyodontidae (Paddlefishes) Lepisosteidae (Gars) Amiidae (Bowfins) Hiodontidae (Mooneyes) Anguillidae (Freshwater Eels) Engraulidae (Anchovies) Cyprinidae (Carps and Minnows) Catostomidae (Suckers) The encyclopedic review of each fish family is accompanied by color photographs, maps, and original artwork created by noted fish illustrator Joseph R. Tomelleri. The result is a rich textual and visual experience. Widely anticipated, this monumental reference is the result of decades of analysis and synthesis by leading fish experts from a variety of universities, research laboratories, museums, and aquariums.
