A timely, authoritative monograph that charts the distribution of North American freshwater fish throughout the continent, attempts to explain these observed distribution tendencies, and develops a theory for the dispersal and evolution of these fishes through historical drainage patterns, plate tectonics, and Pleistocene glaciation. Chapters cover ichthyofaunal 'provinces', fossil fishes, population ecology, and the effect of man's introduction of exotic species into the ecosystem.
