The visual display of quantitative information
Tufte, Edward R., 1942-
Cheshire, Conn. : Graphics Press, ©2001
Part I: Graphical practice. Graphical excellence ; Graphical integrity ; Sources of graphical integrity and sophistication -- Part II: Theory of data graphics. Data-ink and graphical redesign ; Chartjunk : vibrations, grids, and ducks ; Data-ink maximization and graphical design ; Multifunctioning graphical elements ; High-resolution data graphics ; Aesthetics and technique in data graphical design -- Epilogue: Designs for the display of information.
This book deals with the theory and practice in the design of data graphics and makes the point that the most effective way to describe, explore, and summarize a set of numbers is to look at pictures of those numbers, through the use of statistical graphics, charts, and tables. It includes 250 illustrations of the best (and a few of the worst) statistical graphics, with detailed analysis of how to display data for precise, effective, quick analysis. Also offered is information on the design of the high-resolution displays, small multiples, editing and improving graphics, and the data-ink ratio. Time-series, relational graphics, data maps, multivariate designs, as well as detection of graphical deception: design variation vs. data variation, and sources of deception are discussed. Information on aesthetics and data graphical displays is included. The 2nd edition provides high-resolution color reproductions of the many graphics of William Playfair (1750-1800), adds color to other images where appropriate, and includes all the changes and corrections during the 17 printings of the 1st edition.

Freshwater fishes : 250 million years of evolutionary history
Cavin, L. author
London, UK : ISTE Press ; 2017
Freshwater environments and fishes -- Assemblages of freshwater fishes in the Mesozoic -- Assemblages of freshwater fishes in the Cenozoic -- Evolutionary histories of freshwater fishes -- Evolutionary patterns in freshwater fishes.
With more than 15,000 species, nearly a quarter of the total number of vertebrate species on Earth, freshwater fishes are extremely varied. They include the largest fish species, the beluga at over 7 meters long, and the smallest, the Paedocypris at just 8 millimeters, as well as the carnivorous, such as the piranha, and the calm, such as the Chinese algae eater. Certain species evolve rapidly, cichlids for example, while others transform very slowly, like lungfish. The fossils of these animals are very diverse in nature, sometimes just small scattered bones where sites correspond to ancient river beds or magnificent fossils of entire fish where there was once a lake. This book covers the history of these fishes over the last 250 million years by exploring the links between their biological evolution and the paleogeographic and environmental transformations of our planet, whether these be gradual or sudden.
