Synopsis

Ecology of Estuarine Fishes Temperate Waters of the Western North Atlantic by Kenneth W. Able, Michael P. Fahay

This comprehensive reference book details the life history and ecology of the fish species that occupy the estuarine and coastal habitats along the eastern United States and Canada. Kenneth W. Able and Michael P. Fahay draw on their own studies and other research to summarize and synthesize all the known facts about the ecology of 93 important species of fish that inhabit the temperate waters of the Western Atlantic. Presented in individual chapters, the species accounts include complete information about each fish's distribution, habitat use, reproduction, development, migratory patterns, prey, and predators and other natural enemies. The species accounts are illustrated and include lifecycle calendars, tables, and charts highlighting key information. Introductory chapters provide the general characteristics of the temperate ichthyofauna and explain the authors' methodology.Featuring new information based on more than 76,000 samples, novel long-term data, and an exhaustive analysis of more than 1,800 references, this invaluable resource is a complete compendium on estuarine fishes of the Western North Atlantic.

Reviews

A comprehensive resource related to the life history of the estuarine ichthyofauna found along the eastern seaboard of the US... The information is presented in a clear, logical manner. * Choice * An impressive and important compendium that only Ken Able and Mike Fahay could produce. * Bulletin of Marine Science * It is very difficult to to justice to this impressive book... This reviewer congratulates the authors on the volume and expects and hopes that this valuable volume will be obtained and used by estuarine fish biologists worldwide. -- Mike Elliot * Journal of Fish Biology * Although this nearly monumental work sums to a wealth of hard-gained knowledge, the authors pose enough important questions to show that estuarine fish science still has much to discover. Kenneth W. Able and Michael P. Fahay draw on their own studies and other research to summarize and synthesize all the known facts about the ecology of 93 important species of fish that inhabit the temperate waters of the Western Atlantic. * Northeastern Naturalist *
