This chapter mentions many of the types of studies that I missed in the rest of the text: telemetry, otolith microchemistry, metapopulation dynamics and inter-estuarine movements, stable isotope analyses, trophic cascades and biotic interactions, behavioral variability within species (e.g., among individuals, contingents, and cohorts), effects of parasites and diseases, use of remote sensing and continuous in situ monitoring of physico-chemical variables, and investigation of various anthropogenic effects.
