About this book

Ecology of Marine Fishes offers updated reviews of the current knowledge on the ecology of marine fishes integrating chapters written by leading researchers in the field, covering the main relevant topics in fish ecology. This is excellent for anyone in or new to the field who wants an all-inclusive reference on the diversity of marine fish, their behaviours, their role in marine food webs as well as the human and environmental impacts on marine fish, such as pollutants and climate change. The book takes a historical approach to discussing spatial and temporal patterns of fish populations to the changing patterns of the present. Each chapter provides an in-depth review of the science behind marine fish populations and the methodological tools to study them.

Biography

Dr Henrique Cabral is a full professor at the University of Lisbon and is Director of MARE - Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre, Cestas, France. He has worked in different facets of marine fish ecology for ~25 years. His core research area is fish ecology as well such as ecology of coastal systems, fisheries, nature conservation, and environmental impacts assessment. His expertise includes several techniques to evaluate variability in biological and ecological indicators, applied to individuals, populations, communities and ecosystems.

Dr Mario LePage is a senior fish biologist at the Institute of Research and Technology in Environment and Agriculture. His work mainly deals with fish ecology in estuarine environments in Europe but also in French Guiana. He has authored ~49 publications and has been an invited speaker at marine conferences.

Dr Jeremy Lobry is a senior marine biologist at the Institute of Research and Technology in Environment and Agriculture. He is co-directing a research unit on Aquatic Ecosystems and Global Changes. His speciality is trophic networks, focusing on fish compartments, published ~50 articles, and has been an invited speaker at marine conferences.

Dr Olivier Le Pape's research interests include identifying and protecting essential fish habitats in estuarine and coastal areas, studying anthropogenic pressure on fish habitats, and assessing avenues for fish population renewal. He is a Professor of Marine and Coastal Ecology at L'Institut Agro Rennes-Angers and represents the institute as Vice-Director of UMR DECOD, a joint research unit combining teams from INRAE, Ifremer, and L'Institut Agro to study ecological and evolutionary processes in aquatic environments.
