Overview

How do fish populations regulate themselves? David Cushing explains how the effects of climatic changes in the sea have profound implications for the fate of fish larvae. This affects the recruitment of new adults into the population. If recruitment is poor, then fish stocks may fail. Dr Cushing explains that it is only by understanding such processes that we can hope to recognise the implications of global climate change for marine populations. This book will be essential reading for marine ecologists and fisheries biologists alike.
