The Blackburn Press Announces the Reprinting of a Biology Classic:

The Art of Scientific Investigation by William I.B. Beveridge, ISBN
1-932846-05-0, paperback, 178 pages

In The Art of Scientific Investigation, originally published in 1950, W.I.B.
Beveridge explores the development of the intuitive side in scientists. The
author's object is to show how the minds of humans can best be harnessed to
the processes of scientific discovery. This book therefore centers on the
"human factor"; the individual scientist. The book reveals the basic
principles and mental techniques that are common to most types of
investigation. Professor Beveridge discusses great discoveries and quotes
the experiences of numerous scientists.

"The virtue of Mr. Beveridge's book is that it is not dogmatic. A free and
universal mind looks at scientific investigation as a creative art. . . ."
The New York Times

The Economics of Fisheries Management. by Lee G. Anderson, ISBN
1-930665-98-9, paperback; 298 pages

In 1977, Lee Anderson published the first edition of The Economics of
Fisheries Management. Reprinted here is the second edition, published in

The first edition was remarkably successful in that it remained unchallenged
as the most important reference work in the realm of fisheries management,
at least from an economic perspective. The second edition underwent
considerable revision and enlargement.

The book provides a very readable introduction to the economics of fisheries
management, beginning with basic microeconomic principles, and then applying
those principles to a very wide array of fisheries problems, pushing back
frontiers in some advanced areas, while relying on the published literature
in others. The discussion begins with an analysis of the basic open access
problem and shows why, in the absence of property rights, there is a strong
tendency for fish stocks to be over-exploited and for fishing fleets to be
too large. After presenting the argument in terms of several different
models, each allowing a slightly different look at the problem, the economic
and biological effects of various types of management techniques are

".. students, researchers and practitioners will all find this second
edition to be very good reading and an invaluable reference volume". Marine
Resource Economics

". an excellent piece of work, that is consistent with the high standards
Dr. Anderson has established in his other efforts." J. Fisheries Research

ISBN 1-930665-741, hardcover, 388 pages

Originally published as Bulletin of the US Bureau of Fisheries, Volume
XLIII, 1927, Parts I and II, this is a classic of the fisheries literature
that has been out-of-print and unavailable too long.

For each species included in the book, the authors attempted to provide
common names, descriptions (in language as non-technical as possible),
diagnostic characteristics, variations, food and feeding habits, spawning,
embryology and larval development, growth rates, relative abundance,
commercial importance, habitat and specimens in the Smithsonian collection.

consider returning to print. Your suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
