The first of three volumes. Certain to stand among the reference books of choice for anyone interested in North America's aquatic ecosystems, this book covers the ecology, morphology, reproduction, distribution, behavior, taxonomy, conservation, and fossil record of each North American fish family. Volume one covers: Petromyzontidae (Lampreys); Dasyatidae (Whiptail Stingrays); Acipenseridae (Sturgeons); Polyodontidae (Paddlefishes); Lepisosteidae (Gars); Amiidae (Bowfins); Hiodontidae (Mooneyes); Anguillidae (Freshwater Eels); Engraulidae (Anchovies); Cyprinidae (Carps and Minnows); and 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.
