INHS SP 20: The Round Goby, Neogobius melanostomus (Pallas). A Review of European and North American Literature
$6.00

Authors: Charlebois, P.M., J.E. Marsden, R.G. Goettel, R.K. Wolfe, D.J. Jude, and S. Rudnika
1997, 76 p.

This document provides the scientific community with basic biological information on the round goby, which entered North America in 1990. We reviewed the available European and North American literature and compiled a comprehensive bibliography of round goby references including abstracts and annotations. We have also included a listing of examples of outreach materials available on the round goby. This document was inspired by the Round Goby Conference held in Chicago in 1996. Many of the data presented at the conference were preliminary, and therefore were not incorporated into this text. However, we have included the conference abstracts as an appendix. Summaries of conference discussions on research and outreach are also included.
