The Winter 2006 issue of American Currents is, as always, a topical and
taxonomic cornucopia:

Bob Muller's very practical advice on spawning 16 species of darters
(including data on egg characteristics and hatching times!)
Philip Cochran's concise and entertaining summary of 19th and 20th century
records of the American eel in the midwest
John Lyon's observations on a little-known, very rare, and possibly
endangered Mexican minnow.
Bob Bock's series of praiseworthy poeciliids - this time celebrating the
Bruce Stallsmith's recent experience with flame chub research and outreach at
the state capital
NANFA Research Grant recipient Claire McGrath's report on her work with
non-native brook trout and native greenback cutthroat trout...
...and descriptions of two new species of madtoms, once elegant, now saddled
and Chucky.

Where else can you get this kind, this diversity, or this much information on
native fishes ?
And this month.....with beautiful full-color covers!

If not - think about what you are missing - and take corrective action.
