9780199297542: Ecology of Aquatic Systems

With the global importance of aquatic systems becoming more apparent--and the need for effective management of these systems becoming increasingly clear--there has never been a more important time for students to fully grasp the fundamentals of aquatic systems. Ecology of Aquatic Systems is the ideal course companion to achieve this goal. This new edition brings together coverage of freshwater and marine systems to illustrate the principles and properties that unify aquatic systems. Using examples drawn from a wide geographical range, the book presents a broad survey of the field that acts as the ideal foundation for further study.

Opening with a review of the different types of aquatic systems, their interconnected nature, and the diversity of life within them, the book goes on to explore the key types of aquatic habitats, emphasizing the ecological themes that pervade each system.

Written with students in mind, Ecology of Aquatic Systems retains the succinct, lucid style for which the first edition was praised. It includes cross-references throughout, a substantial glossary, and extensive index to help readers engage with, and fully understand, the material presented.

Chris Frid is Professor of Marine Biology at the University of Liverpool, UK.

Review:

`Review from previous edition In my view the main strength of this book is its success in bringing together the whole of aquatic ecology in sufficient depth and breadth. All this within some 200pp (edition 1) and with excellent graphics.
'
Jan Vermaat, Institute for Environmental Studies, Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam

`The style is just right and provides a good balance of generality and specific case studies. The level is also good and the style doesn't rely too heavily on jargon, which makes the book accessible. I feel that the quality of descriptions of the various issues and case studies is excellent
- very clear and concise.
'
Simon Rundle, School of Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth
