Fishes of the Great Lakes region
University of Michigan, Dec 8, 2004 - Nature - 276 pages
For everyday anglers, armchair enthusiasts, and serious students, Hubbs and Lagler's text remains the definitive work in the identification and study of the fishes of this important freshwater region.
Organized by fish family, with sections on waters of the Great Lakes region, zoogeography, field study and collection, preservation of fishes for study, fish identification, anatomy, terminology, and more, Fishes of the Great Lakes Region is comprehensive in its scope and breadth of information-truly the classic book on Great Lakes fishes.
The book also documents a half century of changes in fish population in the region that have resulted from pollution, development, and the introduction of nonnative species. This edition will thus inspire future generations of anglers and students to take a fresh look at one of our most important fauna.
