Title:A Preliminary Report on the Animals of the Mississippi Bottoms Near Quincy, Illinois, in August 1888. Part I
Author(s):Garman, H.
Subject(s):Fish Commission at Quincy
Mississippi River
Quincy, Illinois
water animals
Abstract:The peculiar features of the waters examined while with the Fish Commission at Quincy, in August, 1888, are reflected in the character of the collections taken from them. The locality is not one which would be selected by the naturalist as likely to yield a great variety of species. The waters are too much alike and are too much at the mercy of the Mississippi River for that. It is a localitv, however, that is eminently characteristic of the Mississippi Valley, and one that is calculated to yield a fauna equally characteristic of certain influences which the great stream exerts upon its denizens.
