9780122807800: Feeding Ecology of Fish

Feeding Ecology of Fish establishes a comprehensive framework for the variable ecological patterns exemplified by feeding fishes. The author, a former president of the American Fisheries Society, devotes special attention to synthesizing empirical studies in categorizing feeding patterns. This book shows how remarkably adaptable fish can be with regard to selecting food, often from trophic levels not usually occupied. Relying on a thorough literature survey, Feeding Ecology of Fish will be an invaluable reference for both fishery scientists and ecological theorists.

Special features include:
* Organization by trophic level
* Emphasis on empirical studies
* Broad coverage of a diverse field

Review:

"For anyone interested in studies of fish ecology, this book will provide an important framework within which observations on feeding ecology can be placed in the context of other research efforts. A comprehensive review of the literature. ...Highly detailed. Well done!"
--Joerg-Henner Lotze in NORTHEASTERN NATURALIST (June 2001)
"A broad spectrum of topics covered....The book will be excellent reading for the fisheries biologist and for the graduate students."
--TRENDS IN ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION
"Throughout the book, Gerking does and excellent job of organizing and presenting a readable text summarizing an extremely diverse and somewhat fragmented literature, including a reasonable mix of freshwater and marine examples."
--ECOLOGY
"The coverage of the literature is thorough and insightful, the writing style is concise and to the point, the text is nicely organized...the illustrations are clear and informative. Shelby Gerking should be commended for his efforts in producing a book that will have lasting value for all who study the multitude of interactions between fish and their food supply."
--TRANSACTIONS OF AMERICAN FISHERIES SOCIETY
