Format: Hardcover
I have a nearly complete degree in Geology. Because my special interest is paleontology, I got into sedimentary petrology and geomorphology. It'd been years since I'd read anything on these subjects, so I decided to get back into it by reading the Textbook of Limnology. I enjoyed the first half of the book. It deals with more general information on rivers and lakes and their formation, but I found the later chapters on specific chemistry of fresh water bodies and their flora and fauna more tedious. Unless this is your special area of interest, I suspect you will find it as slow going and unmemorable as I did. This is more a reflection of my own personal interests than a criticism of the content. Certainly for someone with an interest in watershed management this would be a superb general resource. Since I live in Minnesota, a state which has some 10,000 lakes and many rivers including the Mississippi, was covered by and therefore topographically effected by the glaciers, and has a variety of biomes all effected by water distribution, I still found the final chapters of the volume of interest. I've recently started volunteering at the Minnesota Zoo which exhibits animals of the three biomes, so I may reread the text just to get a clearer understanding of the relationship between freshwater bodies and animal life distribution in our state.
