This book provides, for the first time, a synthesiws of quantitative information on the ecology of the brown trout, including sea-trout, and comparisons with closely related species such as the Atlantic salmon, Pacific salmon, and rainbow trout. Much of this work, especially the case studies,is relevant to general problems in quantitative animal ecology as well as to fisheries management. One theme emphasized throughout is the development, testing, and use of realistic mathematical models as important tools for conservation and management of fish and other animals.
J. M. Elliott is at Windermere Laboratory, Freshwater Biological Association.

Editorial Reviews

This is a very carefully planned and well-written book. Its aims and overall structure are clearly outlined at the start and its conclusions spelled out as seven key points in the concludijng chapter. Elliott's style of writing is simple and concise ... As a result, the book provides adetailed and informative but easily-assimilated review of what must count as one of the key ecological studies of recent times.
