Forests support fish. Forests provide commodities. Since the removal and replacement of much of the indigenous forests in North America during the 200+ year wave of European settlement, many aquatic species historically dependent on forests have experienced profound changes in abundance, distribution, and in some cases viability. In this volume, we present the modern history of forest exploitation and management from the early days of forest clearing to support frontier lifestyles and development of industries hungry for all types of forest products, including lumber, fuels, and naval stores, to the emergence of the sophisticated global industry of today. Chapters review and describe the interactions of fish and other aquatic biota with forest management, including impacts of forest management to fish communities, unique impacts on migratory fishes, and impacts on other biota, including rare taxa.

The development of forestry best management practices (BMPs) is presented from different perspectives and regions of North America, and several chapters highlight the role and efficacy of BMPs in supporting aquatic biota. The promise of
BMPs as stewardship measures to make a difference in the sustainability and recovery of imperiled aquatic taxa is examined and evaluated.

Reflections is intended as a reference for aquatic biologists, foresters, and other natural resource specialists and as source
material for anyone interested in exploring the evolution of the complex relationship of forest management to aquatic biota.
