Paul J. B. Hart is a Reader in the Department of Biology, University of Leicester, UK. His research focuses on the role of trophic ecology and competition in fish speciation and on the management of commercial marine fisheries. His publications include a co-authored textbook Fisheries Ecology (1982) and he has co-edited The Impact of Species Changes in African Lakes (1995) and Reinventing Fisheries Management (1998). He is co-editor of the review journal, Fish and Fisheries (Blackwell Science) and he is a past President of the Fisheries Society of the British Isles. John D. Reynolds is a Professor of Evolutionary Ecology at the University of East Anglia, UK. His research examines the evolution of reproductive behaviour and life histories, with an emphasis on conservation of marine and freshwater fishes. He has co-authored a textbook, Marine Fisheries Ecology (2001), has co-edited Conservation of Exploited Species (2001) and is co-editor of the journal, Animal Conservation. He was awarded the FSBI medal of the Fisheries Society of the British Isles in 2000.
"It is a nicely produced book that can be recommended without reservation to both aspiring and established fisheries biologists who wish to learn about modern ideas and findings concerning the biology of fish." Journal of Fish Biology, "...this work is useful as a current, state-of-the-art review source in its field." Library Journal "A must for any library maintaining holdings on fish, fisheries, fish management, or conservation. It is the best review of the state of the art available and should be mandatory review reading for fish managers everywhere." G L Hendrickson, Humboldt State University for CHOICE "...an excellent starting point for graduate students, and a good handbook to have in a reference collection that stresses fish biology and fisheries management." E-Streams "This will be an invaluable reference tool for students, researchers and practitioners working in the fields of fish biology and fisheries." Reference Reviews
