Summary: 229
Abstract--Predicting and under-
standing the dynamics of a popula-
tion requires knowledge of vital rates
such as survival, growth, and repro-
duction. However, these variables are
influenced by individual behavior,
and when managing exploited popu-
lations, it is now generally realized
that knowledge of a species' behav-
ior and life history strategies is
required. However, predicting and
understanding a response to novel
conditions--such as increased fish-
ing-induced mortality, changes in
environmental conditions, or specific
management strategies--also require
knowing the endogenous or exogenous
cues that induce phenotypic changes
and knowing whether these behaviors
