Pursuing a multidisciplinary approach, this book highlights current challenges in, and potential solutions to, environmental water management in Mexico. It includes an essential review of current literature and state of the art research, providing a one-stop resource for researchers, graduate students and environmental water managers alike. The result of a cooperation between 35 researchers from seven Mexican academic institutions, two Federal Commissions and one international organization, the book links science to practice for living organisms and their environment, while also addressing anthropogenic effects on our water ecosystems. Particularly the book addresses the following subjects: Biodiversity in inland waters, physical and chemical characterization of inland waters, physico-chemical characterization of Mexican coastal lagoons, microbiota in brackish ecosystems, diversity associated with southern Mexico's pacific coral reefs, fry fish stockings in aquatic epicontinental systems, a review of tuna fisheries in Mexico, fishery resource management challenges stemming from climate change, aquatic invasive alien species, harmful algal blooms, and aquatic protected areas, related ecological and social problems and the importance for fisheries' yield.


Ana L. Ibáñez is a full time professor at the Department of Hydrobiology, The Metropolitan Autonomous University. With more than 25 years of experience in fish biology, she has researched various aspects of mullet biology, morphometric analysis and fish stocking. Besides her academic work she was the Coordinator of the Masters Program in Biology offered by her institution. Following her postdoctoral project at Hull International Fisheries Institute, UK, her research has focused on fish scales shape analysis for stock recognition, fish mullet population dynamics, and aquaculture-based fisheries. She is the author of more than 50 papers and chapters related to Mugilidae in saltwater: Mugil cephalus and M. curema and Tilapia in freshwater: Oreochromis aureus and O. niloticus and morphometry analysis.
