Inland Fishes of California

By Dr..Peter B. Moyle

Here for the first time is a comprehensive study of the inland fishes of California. It provides biologists, students and amateur naturalists with a survey of the information available on natural history, identification, and management of a rapidly changing fish fauna. Serious anglers will find the book indispensable for an understanding of the habits and behaviour of game fish—where to look for certain species, their feeding and breeding habits, average and record sizes, preferred depths, and major identifying features.

ATLAS OF NORTH AMERICAN FRESHWATER FISHES   

Edited by David S. Lee et al.
Although the many needs for such a volume have long been obvious, only in the last few years has a work of this nature been feasible. The large number of regional faunal works that have recently appeared, the publication of cumulative locality records, and the expansion of museum and other ichthyological collections provide extensive and reasonably complete data for most North American species. Thus, a "first approximation" atlas is now possible.
The desirability of this compilation is perhaps best attested to by the large number of individuals from many agencies and institutions in both countries who volunteered their services to make it a reality. Probably no other single zoological work has been so willingly supported by such a wide spectrum of enthusiastic contributors.
