              For many years, brief encounters between sharks and humans could leave the latter with a vivid memory of the much-maligned fish but no convenient means of identifying it more specifically. With the publication of The Sharks of North American Waters in 1983, everyone from the expe...rienced ichthyologist to the weekend angler had access to concise descriptions and accurate, detailed drawings in this handy field guide to more than one hundred species. All species that have been reported within five hundred nautical miles of U.S. and Canadian shores (plus a few deep-water species from adjacent areas) are illustrated, with summaries of diagnostic characteristics, similar species, geographic range, biology, reproduction, utility, and fishing methods. An illustrated key to the families of sharks, family descriptions, and species characteristics makes field identification simple. Also included is a general account of the evolution of sharks, their anatomy, reproduction, and distribution.

              The Birds of North Central Texas is the culmination of a seven-year study by Warren M. Pulich, who set out to assess and evaluate the avifauna within the 25,000-square-mile area rather than to produce a field guide. With the aid of trusted observers, the author has compiled infor...mation on arrival and departure dates and peak numbers during migration for approximately 400 species. Texas' large variety of bird species is due to the convergence of four vegetation zones in the north central region of the state. In effect, species predominating in the moister eastern portions of the region mingle with species inhabiting the mesquite and cacti of the dry western reaches of the study area. The presence of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and its numerous birders and visitors has ensured volumes of data for sorting and study. Ornithology students, visiting naturalists, environmentalists, and dedicated birders will find this book a valuable aid to understanding more clearly the status of birds in north central Texas.
