Biology and Ecology of Fishes

Immerse yourself in the world of fish ecology with the newest edition of this essential introduction

The study of fish ecology has traditionally proceeded along two tracks: the first is more basic, concerned with the anatomy, physiology and theoretical ecology of fish, and the second is more practical, concerning itself with fish populations, management, and habitats. Many fish researchers have come to view this distinction as artificial, and to develop a new study of fish that combines both tracks in a single holistic approach. It has never been more critical for introductory textbooks to represent this combined study in order to prepare the next generation of fish biologists and fishery scientists.

Biology and Ecology of Fishes meets this need with a textbook that incorporates both biology and population management. Beginning with a general introduction to aquatic life and ecosystems, this book covers anatomical, environmental, and ethological topics to give a thoroughly rounded view of its subject, promising to serve as the fundamental introduction to multidisciplinary fish studies.

Readers of the third edition of Biology and Ecology of Fishes will also find:

  • Detailed coverage of subjects including growth and bioenergetics, feeding and predation, mortality and recruitment and more
  • Increased attention to stressors of fish populations and communities
  • New and revised chapters that introduce quantitative methods and present emerging issues facing fish populations and communities

Biology and Ecology of Fishes is a useful overview for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying fish ecology or fishery biology, as well as a reference for researchers and professionals in fish ecology, fish population management, and related fields.
