Assessing the Sustainability and Biological Integrity of Water Resources Using Fish Communities examines the application of fish community characteristics to evaluate the sustainability and biological integrity of freshwaters. Topics discussed include perspectives on use of fish communities as environmental indicators in program development, collaboration, and forming partnerships; influence of specific taxa on assessment of the IBI; regional applications for areas where the ITI had not previously been developed; and specific applications of the ITI developed for coldwater streams, inland lakes, Great Lakes, reservoirs, and tailwaters.
book serves an important need both for users and nonusers as a statement of present successes and problems with the IBIcomprehensive appendices categorize most of the freshwater fish species in North America by criteria applicable to IBI, such as functional or trophic group membership. --William J. Matthews, Copeia, 2001, No. 1 If you have an interest in using an existing IBI or developing a new one, this book is required reading." --Frank J. Rahel, American Fisheries Society
