A comprehensive approach to understanding diadromy
at the species level: learning from the spawning migration of hickory shad.
On amphidromy, a distinct form of diadromy
in aquatic organisms.
The major themes are the dynamic nature of diadromy
, climate change and anthropogenic influences, ocean migration of diadromous fishes in a changing global environment, linkages with ecosystem energetics, population and habitat restoration, and management and governance.
in fishes: Migrations between freshwater and marine environments.
Initial chapters discuss the early beliefs and studies of diadromy and review the terminology involved, as well as the taxonomic extent of diadromy.
With some groups of fishes, diadromy is a strong, important part of their life history strategy (i.
Other chapters discuss diadromy as an adaptive life history strategy and the phenomenon of landlocking where a diadromous population becomes an exclusively freshwater population.
