    This book contains 36 of the papers presented at the meetings covering the many aspects of oligochaete biology from ecological through evolutionary studies, divided into the following sections: Systematics and Evolution Taxonomy and Geographic Distribution Distribution, Abundance and Habitat Types Ultrastructure Pollution Studies ...

  • Aquatic Oligochaete Biology IX

    This volume contains selected papers from the 9th Symposium on Aquatic Oligochaeta, 6–10 October 2003, Wageningen, The Netherlands. 18 contributions deal with the biology of aquatic oligochaetes, and represents a mixture of the fields of taxonomy, anatomy, morphology and physiology, life history, ecology, sludge studies and toxicology. This wide ...

  • Protozoan Plankton Ecology

    This book provides aquatic biologists with a concise text on the biology, temporal and spatial distribution patterns, and the functional role of planktonic protozoa in fresh, brackish and marine waters. ...

  • Designing Greenways

    How are greenways designed? What situations lead to their genesis, and what examples best illustrate their potential for enhancing communities and the environment? Designing greenways is a key to protecting landscapes, allowing wildlife to move freely, and finding appropriate ways to bring people into nature. This book brings together examples ...

  • Aquatic Oligochaete Biology VIII

    This book contains 26 contributions dealing with the biology of aquatic oligochaetes and covers a wide range of topics including taxonomy, morphology, ultrastructure, embryology, reproduction, feeding biology, ecotoxicity, community studies, and species distribution. Descriptions of new taxa in tropical areas, including Amazonian forest soils, as ...

  • Lake Taihu, China

    There are many shallow lakes in the world. Many of them play an important socio-economic role as contributors to the drinking water supply, in flood attenuation, fisheries and recreation activities. Because of the current anthropogenic changes in the environment, such lakes rapidly respond to eutrophication and swamping. It is often hard to ...

  • Macrophytes in Aquatic Ecosystems: From Biology to Management

    Macrophytes and macrophytes ecology have gained an added importance with the introduction of, and legal requirement to implement, the European Water Framework Directive. This reflects the valuable role that aquatic plant communities play in assessing the ecological status of water bodies. Significant changes in the status and general abundance of ...

  • Molecular Ecology of Aquatic Communities

    This book presents a compendium of molecular biology applications for the study of aquatic community ecology. The collection presents the diversity of approaches that have been used, and provides future directions for the study of 'molecular ecology' of aquatic communities, from viruses to fish, and in aquatic systems ranging from freshwater ...

  • Ecology, Behaviour and Conservation of the Charrs, Genus Salvelinus

    Salvelinus species are one of the most thoroughly studied groups of fishes. Many reasons explain this intense interest in charr biology. Charrs have a Holarctic distribution encompassing many Asian, North American, and European countries and occupy diverse marine and freshwater environments. Furthermore, the current distribution of charr includes ...

  • Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin

    TheLimnology and Oceanography Bulletinis a forum for the ASLO community to share and discuss developments in the field: science, education, policy or otherwise. These developments can be shared in a variety of formats, listed ...

  • Developments in Fish Telemetry

    This volume includes 33 peer-reviewed papers presented at the Sixth Conference on Fish Telemetry held in Europe (Sesimbra, Portugal, 5-11 June 2005). The papers focus on the application of aquatic telemetry techniques by scientists to investigate fundamental aspects of animal biology in order to conserve and manage natural resources. The topics ...

  • Biology, Ecology and Management of Aquatic Plants

    There is a growing need for appropriate management of aquatic plants in rivers and canals, lakes and reservoirs, and drainage channels and urban waterways. This management must be based on a sound knowledge of the ecology of freshwater plants, their distribution and the different forms of control available including chemical and physical, and ...
