Overview

Ecology and Classification of North American Freshwater Invertebrates, Second Edition, is written by premier ecological and taxonomic experts and contains modern coverage of the biology, ecology, and taxonomy of major and minor groups of freshwater invertebrates found in the United States and Canada. Keys to major taxa (usually at the generic level) are provided along with bibliographic information and a glossary of over 700 terms. Chapters have been extensively revised and updated from the first edition, ecological coverage has been expanded (including a second chapter on insects), and the number of authors has increased. The text is geared toward professional researchers and advanced undergraduate and graduate students.
From Reviews of the First Edition:
"This is a book by biologists for biologists, constructed with care, professionalism and detail. ...immediately helpful to me and my graduate and senior undergraduate students; it will be a valuable reference in several of our biology courses such as limnology, ecology and invertebrate biology. ... we would use this volume as a textbook."
—QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY, 1992
@qu" ... an excellent textbook for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in freshwater invertebrate zoology, ecology, and taxonomy. ... at home on the reference shelf of biological monitoring workers, professors, and students.
—JOURNAL OF THE NORTH AMERICAN BENTHOLOGICAL SOCIETY, 1992
