1 Snoeks, J (editor) The Cichlid Diversity of Lake Malawi / Nyasa / Niassa, Identification, Distribution and Taxonomy
0966825586 / 9780966825589 New
2004. 30cm. Pp.360. Hardbound.

This is primarily a scientific book, in some ways a sequel to the 1989 revision of Lake Malawi haplochromines by Eccles and Trewavas.

It is a documentation of recent work by Jos Snoeks and colleagues, European and African, on the cichlids of the Lake, and includes a major revision of Copadichromis with descriptions of new species, a review of Nimbochromis, a study of the deep-water Placidochromis species, again with new taxa described, a review of the sifters (Lethrinops et al.), and chapters on biogeography and sampling. There is also a short overview of the non-cichlids.

The illustrations include a large number of colour drawings, B/W photos (mainly of specimens) and a number of colour photos of live fish by Ad Konings.

The Cichlid Diversity of Lake Malawi / Nyasa / Niassa is an invaluable work of reference for anyone with a serious interest in Malawi cichlids.

Price: 99.99 GBP
2 Snoeks, J The Haplochromines (Teleostei, Cichlidae) of Lake Kivu (East Africa): A Taxonomic Revision with Notes on Their Ecology

Fifteen haplochromine species from Lake Kivu, a deep natural dam lake on the Rwandese-Zairean border, are described or redescribed. All species are endemic to the lake.

In The Haplochromines of Lake Kivu a detailed colour depiction of live and preserved specimens is given separately for both males and females. Guide lines for determination of the species are given.
