The waters of Tennessee are home to about three hundred species of fishes, the most diverse collection of freshwater fauna of any state in the country. This readable and authoritative book, the first comprehensive study of Tennessee's fishes, examines that diversity within the state's complex natural history. It not only synthesizes a wealth of scientific knowledge but presents a tremendous amount of original research.

Species accounts provide information on the classification, identification, biology, distribution, taxonomy, and current status of Tennessee's fishes—many of which are endangered. Taxonomic keys provide readers with guides for distinguishing species. Extensive use is made of high-quality photographs, range maps, and drawings.

The Fishes of Tennessee will be invaluable to ichthyologists and to other biologists as well as to anyone interested in the subject from the perspective of management, commerce, or sport.

The Authors: David A. Etnier is professor of zoology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Wayne C. Starnes is zoologist with the Department of Vertebrate Zoology, Division of Fishes, at the Smithsonian Institution.

The Photographer: Richard T. Bryant is a trained aquatic biologist and professional photographer with a particular interest in illustrations of fishes.
