Miles Keenleyside Symposium

Session Organizer: David L. G. Noakes
Date: January 4, 13:20  - January 5, 9:50
Location: Salon H

Summary Information

In this Special Session we review and summarize the contributions that Miles has made to fisheries research in Canada during his career. Miles began as a protégé of Bill Hoar at the University of British Columbia. He was one of the first to study in the emerging field of ethology in Europe. His doctoral thesis on the schooling behaviour of fishes brought remarkable clarity and rigorous experimental testing of hypotheses that were enduring characteristics throughout his career. He brought that experience, and scientific approach to the study of behaviour, ecology and fisheries management in Canada. With Fisheries and Oceans in New Brunswick he pioneered underwater observations of fish behaviour, including the disruptive effects of pesticides on behaviour and conservation. His faculty career at the University of Western Ontario focused on Centrarchids and Cichlids, but with detailed studies on species as diverse as sticklebacks, mudminnows, darters and coral reef fishes. His landmark volumes on diversity of behaviour in fishes, and the behaviour of cichlid fishes remain as current as ever as the standards for scientific quality. It is a personal pleasure and privilege to bring this Special Session to Miles at his home institution in his home city.
