Guy (USGS, Montana Cooperative Fishery Research Unit, Montana State U.) and Brown (Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries, South Dakota State U.) have edited the 18 chapters of this text and also wrote the first chapter, on science and statistics in fisheries research. The text--which will be useful to professionals as well as a textbook--demonstrates a variety of the analytical techniques possible in handling statistics in fisheries research. Individual chapter topics include fisheries management study design considerations, sampling and experimental design, recruitment, age and growth, mortality, and size structure. Bioenergetics, habitat, predators, and watershed levels are also topics. The contributors are fishery professionals and researchers in the US and Canada. The CD-ROM contains data and box examples corresponding to each chapter, using SAS software.
