About the Authors
  • The local diversity and global richness of coral reef fishes, along with the diversity manifested in their morphology, behaviour and ecology, provides fascinating and diverse opportunities for study. Reflecting the very latest research in a broad and ever-growing field, this comprehensive guide is a must-read for anyone interested in the ecology of fishes on coral reefs. Featuring contributions from leaders in the field, the 36 chapters cover the full spectrum of current research. They are presented in five parts, considering coral reef fishes in the context of ecology, patterns and processes, human intervention and impacts, conservation, and past and current debates. Beautifully illustrated in full-colour, this book is designed to summarise and help build upon current knowledge and to facilitate further research. It is an ideal resource for those new to the field as well as for experienced researchers.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book provides a complete coverage of traditional ecological topics, but it is unique in its focus on how accelerating socio-ecological and environmental changes affect coral-reef fishes.' Charles Birkeland, University of Hawaii, Manoa

    'To do them justice, a book on the ecology of coral reef fishes should surely have a number of key characteristics. Its contents should be diverse and full of intriguing biology, from the physiology of individuals to the macroecology of assemblages. It should be rich both locally, chapter by chapter, and also globally, across the whole span of the volume. It should inspire, excite and instill concern. And, of course, such a book should also be colourful. This volume is all of these things. If you want to know about the ecology of coral reef fishes, start here.' Kevin J. Gaston, University of Exeter

    'All you ever wanted to know about coral reef fishes (and much much more). Overflowing with ideas, beautifully illustrated, clearly written and compellingly organized - this book will be the go-to reference for a very long time.' Nancy Knowlton, author of Citizens of the Sea

    'A comprehensive coverage of topics about the ecology of coral reef fishes, and, last but not least, it is beautifully illustrated. A must read for anyone interested in reef fishes.' Michel Loreau, National Centre for Scientific Research, France

    'Coral reefs fishes are jewels in the biodiversity crown. This authoritative and beautifully illustrated book presents the latest ecological information, essential reading for researchers as well as for those working in conservation.' Georgina Mace, University College London

    'This richly illustrated volume reviews the ecology of the Earth's most complex community - coral reef fishes - including conceptual debates and conservation issues, with chapters by leading experts.' John E. Randall, author of Reef and Shore Fishes of the South Pacific
