9780123736093: Coral Reef Fishes: Dynamics and Diversity in a Complex Ecosystem (Interface Science and Technology)

Coral Reef Fishes is the successor of The Ecology of Fishes on Coral Reefs. This new edition includes provocative reviews covering the major areas of reef fish ecology. Concerns about the future health of coral reefs, and recognition that reefs and their fishes are economically important components of the coastal oceans of many tropical nations, have led to enormous growth in research directed at reef fishes. This book is much more than a simple revision of the earlier volume; it is a companion that supports and extends the earlier work. The included syntheses provides readers with the current highlights in this exciting science.

* An up-to-date review of key research areas in reef fish ecology, with a bibliography including hundreds of citations, most from the last decade
* Authoritative and provocative chapters written to suggest future research priorities
* Includes discussions of regulation of fish populations, dispersal or site fidelity of larval reef fishes, sensory and motor capabilities of reef fish larvae, and complexities of management of reef species and communities

Book Description:

For anyone who seeks to improve our management of these interesting and important creatures.

From the Back Cover:

The fishes that inhabit coral reefs offer ecologists an outstanding opportunity to explore the dynamics of complex, diverse ecological systems. Study of reef fish ecology has led to major reassessment of ideas about the way species are assembled into communities, about species packing and niche diversification, about coevolution, and about the consequences of recruitment variation, and the wide dispersal of larval forms. Coral Reef Fishes is the successor of The Ecology of Fishes on Coral Reefs. This new edition includes provocative reviews covering the major areas of reef fish ecology. Concerns about the future health of coral reefs, and recognition that reefs and their fishes are economically important components of the coastal oceans of many tropical nations, have led to enormous growth in research directed at reef fishes. Coral Reef Fishes is much more than a simple revision of the earlier volume; it is a companion that supports and extends the earlier work. The included syntheses provide readers with the current highlights in this exciting science. Coral Reef Fishes is an important resource for all whose work or interests include coral reef fishes. Graduate students, professional ecologists, researchers policy makers, and anyone who seeks to improve our management of these interesting and important creatures will need to read this book.
