Biology and Ecology of Carp
Philipp E. Hirsch
Carp are unlike other group of fish species. In fact, they are special to such an extent, that we feel a whole book dedicated to all aspects of the biology and ecology of carp is warranted.
While justifying the many aspects of carp in only a single volume may seem overambitious to some others might wonder whether there is really so much to say about a single fish. Despite this being a daunting task, we are confident that this book offers something to learn for the expert and the novice alike.
