KIRKUS REVIEW

Fish reproduction is a subject in which instructive, often bizarre exceptions tend to overwhelm the few easily generalized rules. Patent's uncondescending .rigor and lucid writing once again open up many areas that might have seemed too technical for discussion at this level: embryo development; John Wourms' research into annual fish (a group specially adapted to survive dry spells in lakes and rivers); and the complex parenting behavior of cichlids, including one valuable aquarium species that secretes a ""milk"" to feed its young. Rather more specialized in appeal than previous volumes, but an excellent choice for the young scientist who can handle more challenging concepts.
