The primary bibliography maintained by the Centro de Investigación has links to most of what is available via this web site, but older links to resources of general interest that may or may not appear there and/or are on the Desert Fishes Council website, are retained below until they can be provided in more modern formats via the primary bibliography.

La bibliografía principal mantenido por el Centro de Investigación tiene vinculos a la mayoria de los recursos disponibles por medio de este sitio web, además guardamos vinculos viejos a recursos de interés general pero en formatos no muy modernos, y/o cuales permanecen en el sitio web del Desert Fishes Council. No todos estos aparecen siempre en la bibliografía principal.

It is hoped that volunteer translators may eventually help us provide translations of many of these mostly English language publications. Please contact us if you are interested
