About this book

This volume presents a synthesis of basic biological and conservation data for more than 30 species of sturgeons (Acipenseridae), paddlefishes (Polyodontidae) and their fossil allies in the order of Acipenseriformes. Reprinted from Environmental Biology of Fishes, Volume 48.

'This is a landmark volume. ... do have your library order the volume if they have not done so.' COPEIA, 4 (1999)
