Summary
"This new and comprehensive treatment of the field of ichthyology, the first American effort in more than half a century, is intended as an introduction to the subject. It covers virtually every aspect of the science of fishes: how they are built; how they function; how they react to one another and to their environment; what principles govern their distribution; how characteristics are passed from parents to offspring; how they are classified, and how diverse and numerous they are; how they have evolved; and how they reproduce, feed, and grow. Considerable effort has been made by the authors to render "Ichthyology" useful to the reader lacking in the technical background. Scientific words are defined and scientific names of fishes are used throughout only in conjunction with English names. A large number of illustrations, many by the well known scientific illustrator, William Brudon, are included to help clarify the text"--Jacket
