The single color plate has a Roman numeral W at the far upper right that may have been handwritten; it depicts the same species (Pomoxis nigro-maculatus and Rypticus maculatus), as does Plate VI in the 1855 edition, but it lacks the initials JHR, and in view of the major differences in the two plates was probably drawn by another artist.

Comparisons of age estimates from various structures have been performed for many fish species, including black crappies, Pomoxis nigromaculatus (Kruse et al., 1993); yellow perch, Perca flavescens (Niewinski & Ferreri, 1999); river carp suckers, Carpiodes carpio (Braaten et al., 1999); channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus (Buckmeier et al., 2002); thinlip grey mullet, Liza ramada (Gocer & Ekingen, 2005); common carp, Cyprinus carpio (Phelps et al., 2007); Tibetan catfish, Glyptosternum maculatum (Li & Xie, 2008); bull trout, Salvelinus confluentus (Zymonas & McMahon, 2009); as well as rohu, Labeo rohita; catla, Catla catla; and giant snakehead, Channa marulius (Khan & Khan, 2009).
Induced Spawning Of Black Crappie (Pomoxis Nigromaculatus) In A Recirculation System.
The black crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus) is more widespread and abundant, while the white crappie (Pomoxis annularis) is more tolerant of murky or cloudy water.
No specimens of larger species such as Channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), Crappie (Pomoxis ssp.), or large individuals of the Golden Shiner (Notemigonus crysoleucas) were collected by nets or minnow traps.
Depending on size, and therefore amount of fish tissue, samples were analyzed as composites or individually Because of their large size, carp (Cyprinus carpio) and white perch (Morone americana) were analyzed as individual samples, while the smaller fish, white crappies (Pomoxis annularis) and bluegills (Lepomis macrochirus), were analyzed as composite samples.
Several less abundant species were added in collapsed ponds and streams, with smaller size classes of large lake species (e.g., black crappie, Pomoxis nigromaculatus; smallmouth bass, Micropertus dolomieui; yellow perch, Perca flavescens; and burbot, Lota lota) being a component of these less abundant species.
