This book is well organized and clearly written, and one of the best guides so far published on a single fish species. Bluegills is not too long nor overly complex. It skillfully summarizes the behavior and ecology of bluegills without being biased to particular theories, while providing a balanced overview of this fish. After explaining the general principles or tendencies, the author never forgets to describe exceptions that have considerable scope to stimulate future studies. -- Osamu Katano, Environmental Biology of Fishes 84: 225-228, 2009
This. . .book provides an overview of published literature related to selected aspects of bluegill biology and behavior, including chapters on movement, sensory perception, foraging, competition, predation, reproduction, development, growth, mortality, and management. -- Nancy Nate, Quarterly Review of Biology 83: 225-226, 2008
Bluegills: Biology and Behavior should attract the attention of anyone interested in bluegill biology and ecology. I am not aware of any other book covering the topic, and I therefore anticipate it becoming an important source of bluegill information. -- Anders Nilsson, Freshwater Biology 53: 1489-1490, 2008
Spotte takes an unconventional approach in his depiction of an unconventional fish, long a favorite for sport. He does not seek to merely inform those who have an abstract or mundane relationship with the bluegill, but instead to help readers experience the fish. He enjoys the intellectual challenge of having the fish more or less speak for itself through its behaviors, so he describes bluegill movement, sensory perception, foraging, competition, predation, reproduction, development, growth, mortality and only then of its management. . . . -- Anonymous, SciTech Book News 31(3): QL638, 2007
