2011. 26cm. Pp.xxii,708. 153 photos & figures (35 colour). Hardbound.

Destruction of habitat is the major cause for loss of biodiversity including variation in life history and habitat ecology. Each species and population adapts to its environment, adaptations visible in morphology, ecology, behaviour, physiology and genetics.

Here, the authors present the population ecology of Atlantic salmon and brown trout and how it is influenced by the environment in terms of growth, migration, spawning and recruitment.

Salmonids appeared as freshwater fish some 50 million years ago. Atlantic salmon and brown trout evolved in the Atlantic basin, Atlantic salmon in North America and Europe, brown trout in Europe, Northern Africa and Western Asia. The species live in small streams as well as large rivers, lakes, estuaries, coastal seas and oceans, with brown trout better adapted to small streams and less well adapted to feeding in the ocean than Atlantic salmon. Smolt and adult sizes and longevity are constrained by habitat conditions of populations spawning in small streams. Feeding, wintering and spawning opportunities influence migratory versus resident lifestyles, while the growth rate influences egg size and number, age at maturity, reproductive success and longevity. Further, early experiences influence later performance. For instance, juvenile behaviour influences adult homing, competition for spawning habitat, partner finding and predator avoidance.

The abundance of wild Atlantic salmon populations has declined in recent years ; climate change and escaped farmed salmon are major threats. The climate influences through changes in temperature and flow, while escaped farmed salmon do so through ecological competition, interbreeding and the spreading of contagious diseases.

In Ecology of Atlantic Salmon and Brown Trout the authors pinpoint essential problems and offer suggestions as to how they can be reduced. In this context, population enhancement, habitat restoration and management are also discussed. The text closes with a presentation of what the authors view as major scientific challenges in ecological research on these species.

2014. 26cm. Pp.512. Hardbound.

The first attempt to critically review in a single volume all associations of fishes with invertebrates, other fishes, and aquatic reptiles and mammals based on the latest studies in these areas, together with studies published many years ago and little cited since then.

Symbiosis in Fishes provides comprehensive coverage of the biology of partnerships between fishes and organisms, ascending the phylogenetic scale, from luminescent bacteria, sponges and coelenterates to molluscs, crustaceans and echinoderms, other fishes, aquatic reptiles and mammals. Both facultative and obligatory partnerships are reviewed with emphasis on the behavioural, ecological and evolutionary aspects of fish symbiosis. Each of the eight chapters of this book focuses on a different group of partners. The structure, physiology and anti-predatory strategies of each group are described to provide the necessary background for the understanding of their partnerships with fishes. The formation of the associations, the degree of partner specificity and its regulation, as well as the benefits and costs for the fishes and their associates, communication between partners and their possible co-evolution are discussed in each chapter.

Malawi Cichlids in their Natural Habitat, 5th edition. The fifth, revised, edition of the definitive study of Lake Malawi cichlids.

No lake in the world contains such a diversified and distinctive community of cichlid fishes as Lake Malawi. The total number of cichlid species in the lake is now estimated at about 1000, which is about 200 more than all the freshwater fish species of the North American Continent combined! And there is every indication that still more remain to be discovered.

This fifth, revised, edition of the definitive study of Lake Malawi cichlids discusses and illustrates more species than any previous publication. Basing his study on more than 1700 hours of underwater observations all over the lake, the author characterizes the species by their habitat preference, distribution, feeding and breeding behaviour, and colouration. More than 1750 excellent photographs illustrate the cichlid fauna of the entire lake. Almost all of these photographs were taken in the lake and show the fishes in their natural habitat.

Over the years Malawi cichlids, which are among the most colourful freshwater fishes known, have become very popular among aquarists as they are easy to maintain and breed in captivity. And in recent years an ever-increasing number of aquarists, interested in the natural environment of their fishes, have been inspired to visit Malawi and observe the cichlids in the lake itself. Only those who have done so can truly understand the exhilaration and feeling of fulfillment this entails, but this book offers everyone a unique opportunity to share a little of that enjoyment.

Third (revised) edn., 2015. 29cm. Pp.408. 1760 photos (mostly colour).Hard bound.

For more than a century the cichlids of Lake Tanganyika have been a focus of scientific attention, and many interesting facts regarding fish behaviour have been learned from study of this complex fish community. During the last five decades almost all of the 219 known species have become available in the aquarium hobby, and most of them have proved to be excellent aquarium residents, allowing aquarists to make a considerable contribution to our knowledge of these fishes through observations in captivity.

This third, revised, edition of the definitive study of Lake Tanganyika cichlids discusses and illustrates more species than any previous publication. Basing his study on more than 750 hours of underwater observations all over the lake, the author characterizes the species by their habitat preferences, distribution, feeding and breeding behavior, and colouration.

The more than 1200 photos illustrate all known Tanganyika cichlids, and the majority were taken in the lake, portraying the fish in their natural habitat. The wealth of information on the natural environment this book contains will render it increasingly possible to maintain each species in the most natural way, allowing it to behave as if it were in the lake. Only by thus duplicating their normal environment can we expect to be treated to the natural behaviour of these beautiful and interesting fishes.

2013. 25cm. Pp.160. 300 colour photos. Hardbound.

Cichlids of the genus Tropheus have fascinated aquarists since they were first exported from Lake Tanganyika in the late 1950s. It may have been their "unconventional" shape, or the fact that females brood their offspring to a relatively large size inside their mouths, that initially appealed to hobbyists. They are still some of the most popular cichlids kept in aquaria.

Over the years much has been said about their incredible diversity of colouration, with almost any new area collected in the Lake resulting in new variants, and the emphasis in the aquarium literature has almost always been on the number of variants, morphs, or species that exist in the lake.

Behaviourists have, however, discovered that Tropheus species exhibit unique breeding behaviour not recorded from any other group of cichlids. Their behaviour in the wild is ruled by ecological factors that cannot realistically be duplicated in the aquarium, and for this reason these fish behave rather differently in captivity.

The information in Tropheus in their Natural Habitat is based on observations in the wild and almost all photographs were taken in the lake and show the fishes in their natural habitat.

New
 
2001. 28cm. Pp.170. 161 colour photos, keys. Paperback.

A preliminary check-list of the fishes known or expected to occur in northern Vietnam with comments on systematics and nomenclature.

268 native species are recorded from the freshwaters of Vietnam (from the Ca River basin northwards) and immediately adjacent waters in China and Laos. The systematic status and nomenclature of all species have been reevaluated. Compared to the last synthesis of the fishes known from the same area, 20 (10 %) of the 203 formerly recognised species are invalid, 85 (42 %) additional species are recognised, and the names of 150 (74 %) of the then-known species are shown to be incorrect (either because of misidentifications, or for various nomenclatural reasons). The fish fauna of the Chinese Provinces of Yunnan, Guangxi, Guangdong, and Hainan has been compared with the Vietnamese fish fauna where relevant in an attempt to make the nomenclatures used in the two countries compatible and in agreement with the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature.

Sharks and Shark Products in Prehistoric South Florida is a comprehensive exploration of the economic uses of sharks by Precolumbian natives of south Florida. Laura Kozuch provides a fascinating account of the role of sharks in the culture and economy of south Florida's Native Americans. A zooarchaeologist, Kozuch shows that sharks were regularly hunted by south Florida Indians, for whom they provided meat, shark-liver oil, and teeth for tools and trade. She reviews shark-fishing technology around the world, describes archaeological findings in south Florida, and offers interpretations relevant to the role of sharks in native social and economic systems.
