Editorial Reviews

Review

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

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

"...a powerful text of such scope and calibre as to set a benchmark for limnetic ecology in the 21st century. Achieving a range of disparate accomplishments, it could potentially re-catalyse lake limnology."

Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on March 10, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This book is the first of a two part series, edited by P. E. O'Sullivan of the School of Earth, Ocean and Environmental Sciences, University of Plymouth and C. S. Reynolds of the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Windermere. The purpose of the book is "to provide a sort of turn-of-the-century progress report, which brings together the most recent perspectives on the interactions among the properties of water, the distinguishing features of individual basins and the dynamic interactions with their biota". The immediate inspiration for this book came from the Rivers Handbook, and it has attempted to follow the same organisational structure.
The objective of the book was to provide a point of reference for students and professionals alike, to provide a contemporary and accurate reflection of current understanding about lakes and lake ecosystem function. Overall, the book does provide a complete comprehensive account of the different physical and chemical natures of lakes worldwide. With 18 sections to the book, it contains extensive information that is kept concise throughout the content. The sections are sub divided into logical categories, and are not overloaded in each division in most sections. The quantity of helpful and clear conceptual diagrams and tables help to illustrate and explain the text. They are appropriately linked to the topic of the chapter and they assist in breaking up pages into more manageable reading. The extent of the references available at the end of each section makes it easy for the reader to identify further reading quickly and accurately. Because of the assortment of specialist writers contributing to the book, the sections differ in their coverage and complexity of the section subject and in their ease of reading.
