Symposium 27

A valuable and much-needed reference, this book examines the full range of approaches for incorporating uncertainty or variability into fisheries work and ecosystem management.

This important book contains a series of new and original case studies with details of the context, purpose, methods, and results of each theoretical application. Indispensable to professionals, graduate students, and other academics, this book will be a continuing resource for applying uncertainty in the relationships involving fish population dynamics and management.
