Not given that F. R. Harden Jones released his masterwork on fish migration in 1968 has a publication so completely demystified the topic. With beautiful readability, David Hallock Secor’s Migration Ecology of Fishes eventually penetrates the clandestine nature of marine fish migration.
Secor explains how the 4 a long time of study given that Jones’s vintage have hired digital-age technologies—including digital miniaturization, computing, microchemistry, ocean watching platforms, and telecommunications—that render overt the formerly hidden migration behaviors of fish. rising from the hundreds of thousands of saw, telemetered, simulated, and chemically traced circulate paths is an appreciation of the person fish. contributors of an identical populations might remain placed, discover, hold up, speed up, evacuate, and alter direction as they conditionally reply to their marine lifestyles. yet instead of a morass of person behaviors, Secor exhibits us that populations are jointly equipped via partial migration, which motives teams of people to embark on very diverse migration pathways regardless of being participants of an identical inhabitants.
Case stories during the e-book emphasize how migration ecology confounds present fisheries administration. but, as Secor explains, conservation frameworks that explicitly examine the impact of migration on yield, balance, and resilience results have the aptitude to remodel fisheries administration. an artificial therapy of all marine fish taxa (teleosts and elasmobranchs), this ebook employs explanatory frameworks from avian and structures ecology whereas arguing that migrations are emergent phenomena, dependent via education, phenotypic plasticity, and different collective firms.
The ebook presents overviews of the next options: • The comparative move ecology of fishes and birds • The alignment of mating structures with larval dispersal • education and migration as variations to marine meals webs • Natal homing • Connectivity in populations and metapopulations • The contribution of migration ecology to inhabitants resilience
