  1. No Sea of Cortez, no Life Aquatic…I bet you you don’t even own a copy of Rickett’s “Between Pacific Tides”…if you were my graduate student I would have to seriously question your dedication to this field ;-)

  2. Well, lads, I actually DO own a copy of Sea of Cortez, and The Deep, and Deep New Zealand and about 14 linear metres of other books about the sea and fishes, and work as a collection manager in a Fish Collection, and have occasionally been known to publish describing new taxa. So…can I join your club…can I, can I? :-)
