  • Thoroughly revised and updated edition of a key text in this subject area
  • New material mirrors the recent developments in the field
  • New to this edition
  • This new edition includes sections on different aspects of the abiotic frame, including lake morphology, lake formation processes, the role of humic substances, redox potential ecological stoichiometry, as well as general nutrient cycles. With respect to biological processes, new sections on mixotrophy, bioturbation, multiple predator effects and alternative stable states have been added. Major additions have been made to the chapter on environmental issues in lakes and ponds, for example the effects of environmental disturbances on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning. In addition, we have upgraded references throughout. The new material has been added to mirror the recent developments in the field, and also in response to comments from teachers using the first version in limnology and aquatic ecology classes.

Description

The Biology of Lakes and Ponds ,now in its second edition, is a valuable text for university tuition. Its lucid explanations and descriptions of adaptation, dominance, dispersal, and succession of organisms, as well as the effects of abiotic factors, predation, and competition, ensure its relevance and use to a broad audience of biologists and naturalists with an interest in freshwater ecology.


Readership: Students taking undergraduate/graduate courses in aquatic ecology and limnology; professionals working on water-related environmental problems; naturalists.
