"Coral Reef Fishes" is the successor of "The Ecology of Fishes on Coral Reefs". This new edition includes provocative reviews covering the major areas of reef fish ecology. It concerns about the future health of coral reefs, and recognition that reefs and their fishes are economically important components of the coastal oceans of many tropical nations, have led to enormous growth in research directed at reef fishes. This book is much more than a simple revision of the earlier volume; it is a companion that supports and extends the earlier work. The included syntheses provides readers with the current highlights in this exciting science. It offers an up-to-date review of key research areas in reef fish ecology, with a bibliography including hundreds of citations, most from the last decade. It includes authoritative and provocative chapters written to suggest future research priorities. It includes discussions of regulation of fish populations, dispersal or site fidelity of larval reef fishes, sensory and motor capabilities of reef fish larvae, and complexities of management of reef species and communities.

"...an excellent overview of what has been done in research on reef fish ecology and, moreover, what we have failed to do. This new edition is much more than merely a more recent version of the first book published in 1991, but provides insight into the future perspectives of reef fish ecology and into the research that has to be done if we hope to meet conservation goals...a perfect guide to the future course of reef fish ecology in the new millennium...the format of the book and the structuring of the text, tables and figures is excellent and makes reading the contents a pleasure...Coral reef ecologists, marine ichthyologists or reef conservation managers should not put this book into their bookshelves- they should better keep it on their desks." - Jurgen Herler, University of Vienna, MARINE ECOLOGY, 2005 "...excellent volume.It is an indispensable reference for all researchers and managers working with coral reef fishes." -ECOLOGY (2004) "Should you add this book to your library? Definitely! Sale has done an excellent job of bringing coral-reef fish biologists up to date and clearly outlining future directions for study."-COPIA (2003) "Coral Reef Fishes is full of fascinating details, new evidence and new ideas." -Redouan Bshary for NATURE (January 2003)
