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.

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 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.
