Freshwater Fishes of North America, Volume 1

Volume 1: Petromyzontidae to Catostomidae

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.

Reviewss

"Written at a highly academic level, this book will be best for readers who are in the biological discipline of ichthyology or studying to go into that field."

- Library Journal

"This definitive monograph is essential for all libraries supporting teaching and research in vertebrate zoology."

- Paul B. Cors - American Reference Books Annual

"This handsome volume represents the beginning of an ambitious project. If volume 1 is any indication, it will be a thorough compendium of worthwhile knowledge about all species of domestic freshwater fishes in the US, Canada, and Mexico... When completed, the three-volume set will be the most authoritative work on freshwater fishes in North America."

- Choice

"This is an outstanding book in ichthyology... It is an essential reference source... Undoubtedly one of the best in its field."

- Sonu Chandiram - Biz India Magazine

"If Ross is the textbook, this is the encyclopedia. But is this the "Jordan and Evermann" of comprehensive North American freshwater fish biology? With some caveats, the analogy is close and the answer is 'yes.'"

- D.F. Markle - Environmental Biology of Fishes

"An excellent review of the North American freshwater fish families Petromyzontidae to Catostomidae, and the publishers, editors, authors and illustrators should be commended... [will] appeal to a readership ranging from academics, scientists, anglers and anyone with an interest in freshwater fish in North America."

- Jonathan Harvey - Freshwater Biology

"This is the first volume of a highly anticipated three-volume set that may be the most important fish books on North American fishes produced in the last decade... Any one of the chapters is worth the price of the book. Every ichthyologist interested in the North American freshwater fish fauna should have it on their shelf."

- Copeia

"At a time when we assume that we can search and find whatever information we need via internet search engines, it is comforting to pick up a book, carefully assembled to represent the current state of knowledge on this important group of fishes, and just read. I encourage everyone—Tolle Lege (take up and read)."

- Donald J. Orth - Freshwater Science

"With this book, the editors have initiated the formidable task of compiling an extensive resource that incorporates these diverse species... Biologists, researchers and other specialists in a variety of fields contributed to thoroughly researched chapters that include lovely illustrations and photographs... Students and researchers in a variety of disciplines including ecology, genetics, evolutionary biology and marine biology will find that this title serves as an excellent reference tool and gateway to further research."
