"Full of the details we ichthyologists love, this book will clearly be a standard reference on South American fishes for decades to come. The amazingly detailed glossary alone may well be worth the price of the book!" --Peter B. Moyle, author of "Inland Fishes of California"


"A major contribution to our understanding of multiple aspects of the Neotropical freshwater fish fauna. The book will be of interest not only to ichthyologists, but also to a broader audience of researchers working on freshwater organisms and general biogeographic patterns."--Richard P. Vari, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution


"An up-to-date summary of our knowledge of a major continental biodiversity area, that should attract a wide variety of readers."--William Fink, University of Michigan


"Successfully brings together disparate information and introduces new data and analyses, giving a vast overview of neotropical freshwater fishes." --Brian Crother, Southeastern Louisiana University
