Editorial Reviews

Review

"The integration of environmental applications with discussion of basic science will make this text especially interesting to students and useful to managers of freshwater resources...Well referenced."
-NORTHEASTERN NATURALIST (2004)

"This undergraduate textbook, another of the "Aquatic Ecology" series, will no doubt be used by a number of programs and would be a valuable reference for the professional."
--FISHERIES (June 2002)

"I am of the opinion that the book will be used for a long time, because of its usefulness as a text in courses where most students have an applied interest in aquatic systems. The content covers the entire field well."
--Dale Toetz, Oklahoma State University (November 2001)

"There is a lot to like about this book. It is written in a style that makes for easy reading and comprehension. ...I especially liked the many sidebars highlighting information on a wide range of topics."
--Leonard A. Smock for JOURNAL OF THE NORTH AMERICAN BENTHOLOGICAL SOCIETY (January 2003)

"I will definitely be using this text in my courses. Freshwater Ecology by Walter Dodds is the text we have been waiting for. ...Overall, I found the figures, tables, and conceptual diagrams to be very clear, concise, and easy to interpret. I also appreciated that the end of each chapter included both a summary of major points as well as questions for thought. I find these to be excellent study tools to use before exams."
--Jennifer Tank, University of Notre Dame (October 2001)

"This is an important book that fills a void that has existed in freshwater ecology for some time now. I certainly plan on using it myself, both in the classroom and as a reference.
The material in this book is presented in a manner that will appeal to a variety of experience levels, and the concepts are supported with interesting and very timely examples. I found this book very easy to read, and I have already incorporated some of the examples and methods..."
--Matt Whiles, Southern Illinois University (October 2001)

From the Back Cover

Freshwater Ecology covers both basic and applied aspects of limnology. Written for undergraduates, it serves as an introduction to the study of aquatic ecology. Fundamental features of groundwater, wetland, stream, and lake habitats are reviewed in an accessibly written text. Issues of spatial and temporal scale, anthropogenic impacts, and application of current ecological concepts are covered along with other concepts and ideas that are presented in more traditional limnology texts. Chapters on biodiversity, toxic chemicals, extreme and unusual habitats, and fisheries increase the breadth of the volume. The book provides an extensive background on freshwater ecosystems that will be useful both to those pursuing advanced coursework and to those whose work involves freshwater ecosystems. It explicitly recognizes that understanding aquatic systems requires a holistic approach that includes watersheds, groundwaters, streams, wetlands, and lakes.

Key features
*Contains broad coverage of a variety of aquatic systems, including ground waters, streams, wetlands, and lakes
*Provides background for basic scientific concepts and environmental applications

Format: Hardcover
I have been teaching a water quality field and lab-based methods course for about 10 years, and tried a number of books. While there are many purely aquatic ecology books out there, few also deal well with the applied aspects of aquatic ecosystems that students in natural resources management or environmental science programs are interested in or will deal with when they get jobs in their field. To improve the book further, I would suggest extra material on methods that could be used in lab-based courses.

Purchase, shipping, and delivery were all done in three days. This was included with an email of the tracking number, which was nice since classes just started and I could plan on when it would arrive.

Good presentation, but it does not explain the basic knowledge of freshwater ecology in wide range.
