Fish Biology and Conservation Search Terms

The UC Davis Library online catalog uses Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH). Each library subject database — such as BIOSIS Previews or Zoological Record — also uses subject lists that can help you precisely search your topic.  All life sciences subject databases will have taxonomic searching features available for searching by various taxa groups such as phyla or orders or families.

These subject databases may be demonstrated or discussed at the library session.
