Project to Revise the Kansas Fish Book

Latest update: 13 April 2014

"Kansas Fishes"

This website summarizes a project to publish an updated Kansas fish book. The first state fish book was published by Frank Cross in 1967, and it was revised in 1975 and 1995 by Frank Cross and Joe Collins. Our intent is twofold. One goal is to provide an updated, semi-technical reference and keys to the fishes of Kansas. We have learned much about Kansas fishes since the 1995 edition, and there are more species known to occur in the state. Our second goal is to honor Frank Cross as a memorial to the state's preeminent ichthyologist, who passed away in 2001. A biography was published in a special edition of the Transactions of the Kansas Academy of Science in 2002 (K.A. Moots. 2002. Frank Bernard Cross — "[A] gentle person, whose thoughtful guidance has touched us all." Transactions of the Kansas Academy of Science 105(3–4):258–273.). The biography will be reprinted in the book. The book will be published by the University Press of Kansas in June 2014.

Given the number of species now occurring in Kansas and the workloads most of us face in our professions, we solicited contributions from 47 authors, who wrote species accounts in a standard format, with authorship assigned to each account rather than the book. Some authors knew or worked with Frank. Some are simply familiar with his work or share his fondness for Great Plains species. Accounts are included for all native extant species, extirpated native species, and nonnative species documented from Kansas. In addition, 28 mini accounts are included for species occurring on the Great Plains north of the Red River not native to Kansas but to be watched for in the state. All of these species will be included in the dichotomous key. Organizing Committee members have written species accounts and (with contributions from others) introductory sections on the history of Kansas ichthyology, conservation, and fish anatomy and physiology. Color illustrations (184) by Joe Tomelleri will accompany each species account, some with multiple illustrations (e.g., male-female pairs and adult-juvenile pairs). Maps (121) with symbols on streams have been compiled by the organizing committee through the Kansas Aquatic Gap Project.

This project was organized during 2010–2012, and the contract was signed with the Press in September 2012. Authors submitted draft species accounts to the committee for review (style consistency, added insights on the species in Kansas, length of the text, etc.). The manuscript was completed in February 2013. Work with the copyeditor and production team at the Press occurred during the summer and autumn of 2013. The electronic files are in the hands of the printer, with a projected publication date of June 2014. All royalties will be donated in Frank's name to a student scholarship fund with the Kansas Chapter of the American Fisheries Society. To maintain a reasonable retail price for the book, costs are being underwritten by several entities listed below. If you have any questions, please contact Mark Eberle (meberle@fhsu.edu). A list of species is provided below with names of the authors for each species account. Some authors have moved to other positions since they wrote their accounts.
