Summary:
"The fishes that inhabit coral reefs offer ecologists an outstanding opportunity to explore the dynamics of complex, diverse ecological systems. Reef fish ecology studies have led to a major reassessment of ideas about the way species are assembled into communities, about species packing and niche diversification, about co-evolution and the consequences of recruitment variation, and the wide dispersal of larval  Read more...

   schema:reviewBody ""The fishes that inhabit coral reefs offer ecologists an outstanding opportunity to explore the dynamics of complex, diverse ecological systems. Reef fish ecology studies have led to a major reassessment of ideas about the way species are assembled into communities, about species packing and niche diversification, about co-evolution and the consequences of recruitment variation, and the wide dispersal of larval forms." "Concerns about the future health of coral reefs, and the recognition that reefs and their fishes are economically important components of the coastal oceans of many tropical nations, have led to enormous growth in research directed at reef fishes in the past decade. Coral Reef Fishes is a companion to the 1991 book, The Ecology of Fishes on Coral Reefs. Thirty authors provide 19 chapters to take readers beyond the earlier book, and to identify the most exciting aspects of this flourishing field of science. This book is a "must read" for graduate students and professional ecologists, and for those who seek to improve our management of these interesting and important creatures, and their coral reef environment.
