About the Authors
  • Freshwater fish are one of the most diverse groups of vertebrates, but are also amongst the most threatened. With contributions from leaders in the field, this is the first assessment of the global state of freshwater fish diversity, synthesising the opportunities, challenges and barriers facing the conservation of freshwater fish biodiversity. The book includes the first global assessment of the number, type and distribution of threatened freshwater fish species, discussing the features of freshwater fish biology and ecology that render so many species vulnerable to extinction. Introductory chapters on why freshwater fish are so sensitive to environmental change and disturbance lead into chapters providing detailed reviews of the key threatening processes and potential solutions. A concluding chapter summarises the key issues and looks to the future for opportunities and challenges for the conservation and management of freshwater fish.

    • Leaders in the field provide the first assessment of the global state of freshwater fish diversity, synthesising opportunities and challenges to conservation
    • Introduces readers to the diversity of freshwater fishes, the extent of global threats to that diversity and the evolutionary and ecological mechanisms that have generated extraordinary species diversity
    • Specialist chapters examine key threats to diversity and discuss strategies and options to reduce impacts, highlighting potential management solutions to mitigate the primary threats to freshwater fish species

    Reviews & endorsements

    'It is not often that I moved to write that a book is excellently and authoritatively written and edited throughout, but this is one of those rare occasions … I unhesitatingly recommend this book to anyone involved with freshwater fish conservation in any capacity. … The excellent reviews and thoughts presented here will certainly bring such readers rapidly up to speed on the current state of freshwater fish conservation around the world. Finally, this book also lends itself to adoption as a teaching text for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate classes, with all but the last chapter ending with a series of discussion questions which would serve well as tutorial, essay and even examination subjects!' Ian J. Winfield, Journal of Fish Biology
