"...an engaging [and] entertaining book with useful details..."
Trends in Ecology and Evolution
"[A]n eclectic, scholarly reference work, rich in historical content and chock full of interesting quotes and insights from Darwin and Pauly alike."
"Darwin's Fishes: An Encyclopedia of Ichthyology, Ecology, and Evolution, by Daniel Pauly, is a unique and insightful analysis of Charles Darwin's contributions to ichthyology and to evolutionary biology in general. I highly recommend this book as an enjoyable way to become reacquainted with the original writings and thoughts of Charles Darwin, and to perhaps appreciate for the first time his significant contributions to ichthyology."
ECOSCIENCE, Randal J. Snyder
"Provides a useful historic source."
American Reference Books Annual
"An erudite hobby turned reference work, Darwin's Fishes brings together all of Charles Darwin's scattered remarks on all kinds of fish...Daniel Pauly reproduces and discusses relevant passages from Darwin's notebooks, letters, papers, books and marginalia>'
Gregory Radick, Book Reviews, ISIS
Darwin's Fishes: An Encyclopedia of Ichthyology, Ecology and Evolution presents everything Charles Darwin ever wrote about fishes. Entries are alphabetical and were extracted from Darwin's books, short publications, notebooks and correspondence. The material is interpreted and put in context of both Darwin's time and of contemporary biology. Darwin's Fishes will appeal to natural scientists (especially fish biologists and their students), laypersons interested in fish, and Darwin scholars. It has been written and compiled by Daniel Pauly, one of the best known fish biologists in the world.
