Summary

Stream fish community ecology is an exciting field of research that has expanded rapidly over the past two decades. Both conceptual and technological advances have increased our ability to characterize patterns of community structure across multiple scales and evaluate processes that regulate those patterns. A main focus of this book is to synthesize those advancements and provide directions for future research.

Chapters are grouped into five main themes: macroecology of stream fishes, stream fish communities in landscapes: importance of connectivity, conservation challenges for stream fishes, structure and dynamics of stream fishes, and role of fishes in stream ecosystems. An international group of renowned authors have contributed chapters and theme summaries that provide examples of current research within each of five themes as well as ideas for new research directions.
