Abstract

494 Book reviews considers the possible consequences at the population and community level of the behavioural ¯exibility shown by individual ®sh. The chapter also emphasizes themes that recur throughout the volume, the importance of size-dependent processes and the associated ontogenetic niche shifts in the ecology of ®shes. There is variation in the quality of the chapters, but the overall aim of the book is achieved. Senior undergraduates and postgraduates will ®nd valuable, critical reviews. The suggestions for future research will appeal to all seeking research projects for students. Behavioural Ecology of Teleost Fishes does point up a weakness in the current programme of behavioural ecology. Few of the experimental or ®eld studies have suf®cient time spans to demonstrate that individual variations in behaviour do have consequences for the components of ®tness, especially reproductive success. Given the importance of understanding the factors that govern demographic processes in ®shes, there is an urgent need to demonstrate the links between individual behaviour and population consequences that most who study the subject believe exist. The long-term study of brown trout (Elliott, 1994), with its analyses of the consequences of territoriality, points the way. References Elliott, J.M. (1994) Quantitative Ecology and the Brown Trout.
