"When the first edition of Inland Fishes of California was published in 1976, it became a benchmark reference. Since that time, our knowledge of California's freshwatar fishes has dramatically increased. This completely revised edition incorporates a vast amount of new information and creates a fresh synthesis of the historical data. Written by the leading expert on California's freshwater fishes and illustrated with line drawings and a gallery of color paintings, this compendium is a source for understanding and identifying the state's freshwater fishes. It is a resource for anyone who needs to have accurate and detailed information on California's fishes at their fingertips."--Jacket.
