About this book

The book provides the most comprehensive review of lamprey biology since Hardisty and Potter’s five-volume “The Biology of Lampreys” published more than 30 years ago. Published in two volumes, it includes contributions from international lamprey experts, reviewing and providing new insights into the evolution, general biology, and management of lampreys worldwide.  This first volume offers up-to-date chapters on the systematics, general biology, conservation status, and conservation needs of lampreys.  It will serve as an important reference for researchers working on any aspect of lamprey biology and fishery managers whose mandate is to control or conserve lamprey populations.

Reviews

“The current book provides a welcome update on many of the topics covered in Hardisty and Potter’s older series, and includes greater coverage of the control of invasive sea lampreys in the Laurentian Great Lakes and the conservation of native lamprey around the world. … This is an essential book for anyone interested in the biology, conservation, and management of lampreys. … this new publication provides a welcome synthesis of recent research on lampreys and efforts to conserve and control them.” (Thomas M. Neeson, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 91 (3), September, 2016)
