Description

The Behavior and Ecology of Pacific Salmon and Trout explains the patterns of mate choice, the competition for nest sites, and the fate of the salmon after their death. It describes the lives of offspring during the months they spend incubating in gravel, growing in fresh water, and migrating out to sea to mature. This thorough, up-to-date survey should be on the shelf of everyone with a professional or personal interest in Pacific salmon and trout. Written in a technically accurate but engaging style, it will appeal to a wide range of readers, including students, anglers, biologists, conservationists, legislators, and armchair naturalists.

Contributor Notes

Thomas P. Quinn is Professor of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington.

Editorial Review

[a] readable book aimed not only at scientists and academics but also at “ordinary? people who just want to learn more about these ecologically and economically important animals? One of the ways in which this book manages to communicate such an extensive amount of information is through its excellent organization? As a fish biologist, I was immensely pleased to hear of the publication of this book. (And even more pleased when asked to review it). I read it cover to cover and enjoyed every minute. While a non-?fish person? may not share the extent of my enthusiasm, I would bet that any naturalist with an appreciation or concern for the natural environments of the Pacific Northwest would never regret adding this book to their collection. Salmon have played such a prominent role in our social and ecological history: let us arm ourselves with knowledge of their fascinating life histories and ecological importance as we fight for their conservation and survival into the future.
