This is the first book to provide a detailed treatment of the field of larval ecology. The 13 chapters use state-of-the-art reviews and critiques of nearly all of the major topics in this diverse and rapidly growing field. Topics include: opatterns of larval diversity oreproductive energetics ospawning ecology olife history theory olarval feeding and nutrition olarval mortality obehavior and locomotion olarval transport odispersal opopulation genetics orecruitment dynamics olarval evolution Written by the leading new scientists in the field, chapters define the current state of larval ecology and outline the important questions for future research.
