A guide and a first-rate reference for the angler, scientist and amateur naturalist alike, this comprehensive volume profiles each of the 144 fish species inhabiting the waterways of Kansas - as well as 27 others that might make their way to the state from nearby river basins.

With 121 maps and 184 full-colour drawings by Joseph Tomelleri, arguably the best illustrator of North American fishes, Kansas Fishes is an incomparable resource. For each species, the authors, an all-star cast of regional biologists, provide information about fundamental natural history, anatomy and physiology, along with in-state distributions, habitats, characteristics and pertinent issues of conservation and ecology. With these experts authoring detailed accounts of the species they know best, this is a uniquely authoritative account of the region's fishes. As such, it will prove useful to students and professionals while providing the passionate amateur and the simply curious an entry into the fascinating world of the fishes of Kansas and nearby states.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The preparation of this volume is magnificent throughout and shows the great care exercised by the committee and the contributors. The volume clearly stands among the very best ones devoted to fishes inhabiting the lakes and streams of a state."--Quarterly Review of Biology

"I have already found this book to be very useful for both identification and detailed species information in my lab. The book also is a nice reference for the office. I am sure this book will be an important reference book for information about fish in Kansas and the Great Plains for both scientists and the general public."--The Prairie Naturalist


"Kansas Fishes is an authoritative account of the fishes of the Great Plains and a wonderful tribute to the legendary Frank Cross. The information is the new baseline for streams undergoing rapid change and should form the basis for conservation of the special fishes that inhabit them. And don't miss the wonderful illustrations by Joe Tomelleri, the best fish artist I know, anywhere."--Peter B Moyle, Department of Wildlife, Fish, and Conservation Biology Center for Watershed Sciences

"An exhaustive compilation on the taxonomy, biology, ecology, zoogeography, and conservation status of Kansas fishes. Kansas Fishes has broad appeal to naturalists, anglers, and scientists within and outside of Kansas. Frank B. Cross would be proud."--Timothy Bonner, coauthor of Freshwater Fishes of Texas
