The authoritative expert's guide to fascinating frogfishes and their unusual lives.
Theodore W. Pietsch is professor emeritus in the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington. He is the author of more than a dozen books, including Trees of Life: A Visual History of Evolution and Oceanic Anglerfishes: Extraordinary Diversity in the Deep Sea. Rachel J. Arnold is the associate director of the Salish Sea Research Center at Northwest Indian College.
This impressive book includes all of the information, with beautiful photographs and illustrations, for the 52 species of frogfishes (family Antennariidae, order Lophiiformes) known as of 2020 . . . Every university library should have a copy. Ichthyologists, collectors of books on fishes and others with a serious interest in anglerfishes will also find this book a valuable addition to their libraries.-- Bruce C. Mundy * Fisheries *
