|Fish of the Amazon
and their Habitats
|An invaluable resource for aquarists, and anyone interested in Amazonian ecology.
This multimedia CD presents an array of in-depth information on the topic, written by an expert in the field. The original texts, photographs and videos are presented with an array of features designed both to make research easier in finding the facts you need, and to make the material accessible to amateurs. Graphs, tables and diagrams present original and complete recordings, in addition to the comprehensive texts.
The CD is a complete revision of our old title, 'Amazonian Fishes and Their Habitats'; released in September 2012, it contains a host of new photographs, and videos, from the Mamiraua reserve in Brazil, the Pacaya-Samiria reserve in Peru, and from other areas of Amazonia. As well as all this, we have updated many of the species descriptions and taxonomy, in line with recent scientific research.
Many popular aquarium fish originate in Amazonia; anyone interested in either the fish or the ecology of the region will find this CD invaluable. Information is not limited to the fish; plants, animals, birds, and human life is discussed, to provide a remarkable insight. With hundreds of original colour photographs, maps, and diagrams, Peter Henderson provides one of the most complete reference works about the region ever published.
