ID help - was Re: Another mystery killie
I'll go out on a limb and say there is no cheap, effective killie atlas
in colour for IDs. They are books you either save, or hunt, for.
Aqualog is good, but is just a very expensive picture book. The Baensch
Aquarium Atlas series has good killie sections, and I was lucky to find
it in a second-hand bookstore at a very cheap price - $15 Canadian
(about $10 US) per volume, for the first three. It's worth looking
around for, as it can be found in some libraries too.
Does anyone know if there are plans to expand the photo gallery on the
AKA site? I say this as a slacker/non-photographer/consumer, but it's
such a good resource. I've used the late Winfried Steinglein's site for
IDs a lot, but who knows how long we will have access to it.
