View Author Bio
Moyle, Peter B : University of California-Davis
Peter B. Moyle is coauthor of Fishes : An Introduction to Ichthyology (1988). He is Professor of Fisheries Biology at the University of California, Davis.
"Reading this unique field guide will be extremely rewarding for anyone who enjoys fishing, aquariums, and aquatic ecosystems. The book's well-organized format and very readable text, supplemented with numerous outstanding illustrations, provide an excellent scientific introduction to the world's little known ichthyofauna. Moyle's presentation is a stimulating summary of fish biology with aquatic ecosystem assessments by an experienced teacher interested in protecting habitats and maintaining species diversity."
--Jack DeForest, Audubon Naturalist News
"This book belongs not on the coffee table but on the armchair of anglers, aquarists, and other 'afishionados,' both amateur and professional. Fish are jumping, the reading is easy, and the enthusiasm is contagious."
--John J. Ney, BioScience
"This book by a fish biologist brings the layperson up to speed on fish biology and behavior. But the fish Moyle describes also become a metaphor for the fragile beauty of our world."
