"Scientists estimate that 50 to 100 species of vertebrates and invertebrates are vanishing every day, and they predict by the year 2050 about half the world's existing species will have been extirpated." -- Frederick H. Wooding, 1994.

The first edition of Frederick H. Wooding's Lake, River and Sea-Run Fishes of Canada (Harbour, 1994) was The Angler's Book of Canadian Fishes (Collins, 1959).
