The book’s 47 chapters cover the biological, ecological, genetic, and management concerns of endemic basses within the genus Micropterus.

The opening chapters profile the nine recognized species of Micropterus, and describe their unique conservation needs. Later chapters are dedicated to fishery topics and the influences of human dimensions. New findings pertaining to life history, movement, habitat use, and disease are presented. Large-scale habitat restoration initiatives are described and their positive impacts evaluated. The negative impacts of introduced basses are detailed, with multiple case studies of hybrid introgression. Novel evolutionary lineages such as Bartram’s Bass and the newly discovered Choctaw Bass are introduced, and their taxonomic status considered. All chapters emphasize conservation needs for vulnerable populations within their native habitats.

Contains full-color plates of each species. This work will be useful to fishery scientists, biologists, managers, culturists, students, and interested public such as anglers and conservationists.
