Description

This book will illuminate the deep and often underappreciated connections between basic ecology and fishery science, and will explore the implications of these linkages in crafting management strategies for the 21st century.

  • A concise, authoritative text on fishery ecosystem dynamics
  • Provides "real world" examples of the practical application of methods in both marine and freshwater ecosystems
  • Examines the environmental drivers of fisheries in the context of climate change
  • Includes an electronic supplement with example data sets, as well as R code for analysis and graphical representation
