--BIOLOGICAL CONSERVATION, 2000
"Intertidal Fishes offers much in the way of extensive data presentation and interpretation, a wide array of topics, useful (and consistently prepared) graphics, exhaustive reference lists and provocative ideas for future work. This book and Graham's most readable text on air-breathing fishes in particular, provide a state-of-the-science summation of what is known of the intertidal fishes, pointing to much interesting and important work to come."
"Intertidal marine fishes have always been relatively well-known because they are easy to capture and observe. But until now no one has attempted to bring together in one volume the existing information about their biology. Editors Horn, Martin, and Chotkowski have succeeded in organizing a comprehensive treatment that covers virtually all aspects of intertidal adaptation."
--CHOICE, June 1999
"...each chapter can stand alone as a strong review article, making the book as a whole effective as both a teaching tool and an original scholarly synthesis of modern research. This volume is very comprehensive, and it is difficult to find a better way of synthesizing the current literature on intertidal fishes. I strongly recommend this volume for ichthyologists, physiological ecologists, coastal nautralists, and anyone interested in studying a unique group of fishes."
"...an extensive and authoritative review of the current state of knowledge about this fascinating and often overlooked group of animals. This is a practical manual offering sound advice and aiming to raise awareness. In its primary aim of stimulating greater interest in the group, this book will certainly succeed. In suggesting that these fish, being sensitive to the effects of disturbance, might even prove to be useful indicators of the health of intertidal habitats, the authors might even have achieved a wider success."
--ZOOLOGICAL JOURNAL OF THE LINNEAN SOCIETY, 1999
"This book will be welcomed by all marine biologists concerned with littoral and coastal ecosystems, both as teachers and researchers. This is quite probably the first comprehensive treatment of the biology of littoral fishes, and the editors are to be congratulated on their achievement."
