By William J. Matthews

Approximately a decade in the past i started making plans this booklet with the target of summarizing the present physique of data on ecology of freshwater fishes in a manner just like that of H. B. N. Hynes' entire treatise Ecology of operating Waters for streams. The time appeared applicable, as there have been numerous fresh volumes that synthesized a lot details on quite a number themes very important in fish ecology, from biogeographic to neighborhood scales. for instance, the "Fish Atlas" (Lee et aI. , 1980) had supplied diversity maps and easy access to the unique literature for all freshwater fishes in North the USA, and in 1986 Hocutt and Wiley's Zoogeography of North American Fishes supplied an in depth synthesis of just about every thing identified approximately distributional ecology of fishes on that continent. Tim Berra (1981) had summarized in handy map shape the global distribution of all freshwater fish households, and Joe Nelson's 1976 and 1984 variations of Fishes of the realm had seemed. to counterpoint those "big photograph" perspectives of fish distributions, the amount on neighborhood and Evolutionary Ecology of North American Freshwater Fishes, edited by way of David Heins and myself (Matthews and Heins, 1987), had supplied a chance for greater than 30 participants or teams to summarize their paintings on movement fishes (albeit often for warmwater systems).
