    The Ecology of Stream Fish Symposium (Lobón-Cerviá & Mortensen 1999) was structured as a number sessions destined to showcase the latest developments and prospects for the future in areas of research that, in the opinion of the meeting's Steering Committee and organizers, held particular interest. Convinced of the benefits of research that integrates across fields, the Committee contemplated this division into subtopics as a sort of "necessary evil" imposed by logistics and not without some apprehension about how it may affect the snapshot of current research the Committee hoped the Symposium to offer. The inherent artificiality of this, or any other, rigid scheme was amply confirmed as soon as proposals for presentations started arriving. It was often apparent that slight shifts of emphasis would have allowed the comfortable lodging of the same presentation in different sessions. Fortunately, the Symposium's size did not require running sessions simultaneously, and all participants could attend all talks if they so wished. As a consequence, audiences were always diverse in terms of the research areas represented in them, and this greatly helped to bring out the cross-field aspects of presentations in the subsequent periods for comment and discussion. Thus, common ideas and themes that had attracted the attention of researchers with varied perspectives and primary interests were highlighted, and there was abundant opportunity for the enriching insight provided by views of a certain topic from different angles.
