Editorial Reviews


This unusually well-integrated, 24-author volume presents the case for use of biological properties of aquatic communities to manage streams and regulate their use for effluent dilution and other purposes... The quality of the papers is high, and they cover the topic thoroughly...

More About the Author

Thomas P. Simon (1959- ) was born in southeastern Michigan. He earned academic degrees in Biology from The University of Michigan (BS), University of Wisconsin (MS), and the University of Illinois (PhD). His training in ichthyology was at the University of Michigan under Karl F. Lagler. He is a third generation academic descendent of David Starr Jordan tracing his lineage through Karl F. Lagler and Carl Hubbs. While at the University of Illinois he studied under Lawrence M. Page. For 25 years he was a Federal government scientist employed by the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of the Interior, US Fish and Wildlife Service. He was recognized as a National expert in biological assessment and criteria and environmental indicators. His research program includes applied research on the ecology and conservation of aquatic habitats with emphasis on North American freshwater fish and crayfish. He is a coauthor of the "Reproductive Biology and Early Life History of Fishes in the Ohio River Drainage" series and has published other books on topics including ecological health, biological indicators, Great Lakes wetland health, Fishes of Indiana, risk assessment, and crayfish conservation. His research emphasis is on solving practical problems in water pollution and resource management. His studies involve applied research focused on anthropogenically modified habitats affected by landscape change, contaminants, and watershed stressors. He is a a decorated medal recipient, life member of the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists and American Fisheries Society, Fellow of the Indiana Academy of Science, certified as a fisheries research biologist by the American Institute of Fisheries Research Biologists, former Director of the Indiana Biological Survey, and recognized as outstanding Professor at The Ohio State University, FT Stone Laboratory (2011).

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Yoichiro Kanno on February 10, 2001
Format: Hardcover
The book provides very thorough insights into biological foundations in relation to water resource management in North America. For those learners and researchers who are interested in biogical monitoring using index of biotic integrity(IBI), there is a lot to gain from the book. One strength of the book is that it provides many examples of IBI regional applications, which are especially useful for those who are planning to introduce IBI to regions where it has not been developed or tested so far. Many chapters are devoted to fish IBI, while invertebrate IBI is also explored a bit. Another strength of the book is that it relates biological criteria to conservation policy, thus making the nature of it interdisciplinary and practical. The book is also practical in the sense that it elaborated on field sampling methods. The book is probably best for intermediate/advanced learners and researchers of this field, and a bit unsuitable for public reading. Biological foundations and their integration into conservation policy in this book are also valuable for people who are working in freshwater conservation and water resource management outside North America. In fact, I am a graduate student from Japan studying in Canada, and I am sure that the book contains valuable information for my home country, too. I definitely rate the book 5 stars!

This is a very good book; suggest it for any person working with assessment of aquatic ecosystems. Has an excellent summary of most current assessment techniques, as well as historical/past uses of same. Copious examples of water quality examples.
