Description

An enormous, superbly illustrated book that reveals the astounding diversity of Alabama's fishes through brilliant color plates by Joseph Tomelleri and incredibly detailed information from the authors. These two leading scientists have dedicated years to documenting the diets, growth rates, reproduction, sizes, distribution, and status of Alabama's fishes, and they present this wealth of information in a helpful, user-friendly format. Keys to the species provide fast, accurate identification and allow anglers to determine the species of fish they have just caught. Ideal for everyone interested in the diversity of our world.show more

Review quote

"We can't value that which we insufficiently understand. The authors and illustrator of Fishes of Alabama have made it apparent through their fine work that this part of Alabama's and America's wildlife heritage is worth cherishing and protecting. I hope this book finds a wide readership and a permanent place in the libraries of those who care about our natural world."show more
