Overview

Freshwaters are utterly fascinating. They are the threads that stitch together the landscapes of the Earth with a myriad of two-way exchanges involving chemical substances, and organisms from algae and insects to hippopotami and bears. At the same time they suffer the pollutant consequences of human abuses of the land, and are perhaps the most damaged of the Earth’s ecosystems. This book, a completely re-written edition of a text book widely used for the past thirty years, continues a tradition of clear, jargon-free writing, a richness of examples and a passionate celebration of rivers, lakes and wetlands. It pulls no punches in describing the threats to freshwaters, whilst revelling in the richness of their fundamental ecology. It gives equal treatment to polar, cold and warm temperate and tropical systems, so avoiding any bias towards any particular region. It is truly a text book for the world’s trainee freshwater ecologists.
