Volume one of the Handbook addressesthe physical and biological aspects of lakes pertinent to lakemanagement, emphasising those aspects particularly relevant tolarge, still bodies of water. Volume two then considers lakemanagement, with particular emphasis on sustainability, restorationand rehabilitation.

About the Author:

Patrick O'Sullivan was formerly Principal Lecturer inEnvironmental Science at the University of Plymouth, UK. Hisresearch was mainly been conducted into the development throughtime of lake-watershed ecosystems, and the reconstruction of lakeontogenies using palaeolimnological and documentary proxy records.Throughout his teaching career, he concentrated on development ofinterdisciplinary programmes in Environmental Science, and theinterface between the scientific understanding of human impact uponnatural processes in lakes, and the economic and philosophicalideas which lie behind the solutions to 'environmental' problems.

Colin Reynolds is a Research Fellow at the WindermereLaboratory of the Freshwater Biological Association. Most of hiswork there has been directed towards the ecology and dynamics ofphytoplankton, in lakes, rivers and reservoirs. He has publishedover 200 research papers, two books and edited or co-edited severalothers. He won the International Prize in Limnetic Ecology in 1994and was awarded the Naumann–Thienemann medal of SIL, theInternational Association for Limnology.

Review:

"However, I suggest that no serious contemporary lake limnologistshould be without this volume on the desk or bookshelves. Ianticipate regular returns to my inspection copy." (AfricanJournal of Aquatic Science, 2004)

"...the Editors and their contributors have provided a treasurechest of information....researchers...would be well advised torecommend it to their librarians."
SILnews

"...a powerful text of such scope and calibre as to set abenchmark for limnetic ecology in the 21st century. Achieving arange of disparate accomplishments, it could potentiallyre-catalyse lake limnology."
African Journal of Aquatic Science
