  This landmark book draws together a vast wealth of information on tropical estuarine fishes and provides a vital reference point for all aspects of their study. The booka s comprehensive contents include thorough coverage of the types and distribution of these fishes, their diversity and the environmental conditions and communities in which.

Technique (Appendix 1). Twelve species were dropped from the review process due to reviewer concerns over species’ utilization of marine habitats. Several reviewers suggested that the ENSP conduct a separate status review focusing on anadromous fish species. The statuses of the remaining 53 species were reviewed during four rounds. Coastal fish are found in the waters above the continental shelves that extend from the continental shorelines, and around the coral reefs that surround volcanic islands. The total world shoreline extends for , km (, mi) and the continental shelves occupy a total area of million km 2 (9 million sq mi). This is about % of the world's total area of million km 2. CiteScore: ℹ CiteScore: CiteScore measures the average citations received per document published in this title. CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a given year (e.g. ) to documents published in three previous calendar years (e.g. – 14), divided by the number of documents in these three previous years (e.g. – 14). The heart of the book is the individual profiles of each of the 66 freshwater, estuarine, and anadromous fishes native to California, and the 51 alien species now established in the state. Each profile includes a line-drawing portrait, a distribution map, and a full description of the fish’s physical characteristics, distribution, life.
