The fish is the most successful vertebrate in the world. Fishes outnumber all other species of backboned animals by twenty to one, and only their adaptability has enabled them to achieve their dominant position in the animal world and to be capable of colonising almost every stretch of water on the face of the earth.

***ATLAS OF NORTH AMERICAN FRESHWATER FISHES   

Edited by David S. Lee et al.

This atlas attempts to summarize available distributional information on all the freshwater fishes of the United States and Canada, and to provide some information on their biology. 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 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. We anticipate that the atlas will be useful in studies of biogeography, systematics, and ecology, and to persons involved in fisheries management and environmental assessment. It should also be quite important to educators, and to fishermen and general outdoorsmen in the United States and Canada.

***** OCEANLIFE

By Sally Morgan and Pauline Lalor.
Oceanlife is a journey into the seas, beautifully illustrated with a wealth of superb colour photography 
from around the world. Starting from the shore, where the oceans meet the land, and diving ever further down to the depths where darkness and enormous water pressure makes exploration almost impossible, it considers the very different life-forms that are found in the various habitats. With a number of special feature sections that look at subjects such as dolphins, hammerheads, coral photography and camouflage in detail, it includes chapters on Coral Reefs, The open Ocean and The Sea Beds.

This lavishly illustrated Hardback book in colour, with Dust cover. 512 pages is in mint condition
