Featuring more than 200 color photographs of species and habitats, this is the first comprehensive assessment of the fishes of the Middle Savannah River Basin (MSRB). Located along the Georgia-South Carolina border, the MSRB comprises the portion of the Savannah River drainage area located on the Upper Coastal Plain and edges of the Lower Coastal Plain. The book identifies and discusses 101 native and introduced species from 26 fish families - approximately 70 per cent of the native species in the entire Savannah River drainage area. Illustrated in color with photographs and a local distribution map, each species account describes the fish's appearance, meristic features, size, biology, habitat, conservation status, similarities to other species, and geographic range. The book also discusses the Savannah River, tributary streams, reservoirs, and ponds from the 1950s to the present showing ecological changes, detailed habitat descriptions, and associated fish assemblages.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Fishes of the Middle Savannah River Basin is a superb reference. It combines a wealth of scientific information on individual species with a background on fish assemblages in specific habitats. The keys are straightforward and easy to follow, and the individual species accounts are complete. Color plates are original, and most depict fish as they would appear at capture or in the wild. These true-to-life color photos are a valuable addition and improve the quality of the text as a field guide. Although designed for the professional, Fishes is a valuable reference for the angler and amateur naturalist as well. I highly recommend Fishes as a valuable addition to any fish-fancier's library.

--J. Jeffery Isely "Co-Acting Unit Leader of the South Carolina Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit "

Filled with vivid, color photographs, detailed maps, and almost everything a lay-reader might want to know about the region's fishlife and habitats. This is a fascinating book for the coffee table or the more serious shelf.
