aquatic ecological monitoring Books

  • New Approaches to Monitoring Aquatic Ecosystems

    Offers examples where new methods and approaches of environmental monitoring are being employed. Papers elaborate on specific concerns, questions, and program criteria that characterize the development of monitoring programs and provide paradigams for future monitoring programs. Key discussion concepts include water quality, statistical design ...

  • Aquatic Biodiversity II

    Water is Life. Freshwater is one of the most valuable commodities on our planet, and this resource should be managed in a sustainable way. Yet, we are less than careful in the way we use water and many of our non-marine, aquatic habitats are threatened by anthropogenic impacts. Eutrophication, for example, could well turn into one of the major ...

  • River Ecology and Management

    Touching all parts of the natural environment and nearly all aspects of human culture, streams and rivers act as centers of organization within landscapes. They provide natural resources such as fish and clean water, transportation, energy, diffusion of wastes, and recreation. Today, with unprecedented demands on streams and rivers by an ...

  • Biomonitors and Biomarkers as Indicators of Environmental Change

    Introduction to Biomonitors and Biomarkers as Indicators of Environmental Change; F.M. Butterworth. Assessing Ecological Risks in Terrestrial Systems with Honey Bees; J.J. Bromenshenk, et al. Aquatic Insects as Biomonitors of Ecosystem Health in the Great Lakes Areas of Concern; L.D. Corkum, et al. Larvae of Chironomidae (Diptera) as ...

  • Environmental Toxicology and Risk Assessment, 7th Volume

    Provides a variety of environmental toxicology issues that reflect the current status of ecotoxicology research and methodology. 28 peer reviewed papers represent the three major components of ecotoxicology including: • measurements of toxicity of contaminants in aqueous, sediment, soils, air, and dietary media to terrestrial and aquatic ...

  • Source Separation and Decentralization for Wastewater Management

        Is sewer-based wastewater treatment really the optimal technical solution in urban water management? This paradigm is increasingly being questioned. Growing water scarcity and the insight that water will be an important limiting factor for the quality of urban life are main drivers for new approaches in wastewater management. Source Separation ...

  • Diagnostic Tools to Evaluate Impacts of Trace Organic Compounds

     With the recent advent of improved analytical and biomarker detection capabilities, a variety of organic chemicals have been found in trace amounts (Trace Organic Chemicals, TOrCs) in surface waters and fish tissue. TOrCs include pharmaceuticals, personal care products, surfactants, pesticides, flame retardants, and other organic chemicals, some ...

  • The Atna River: Studies in an Alpine-Boreal Watershed

    This volume presents a unique set of time series data concerning the environmental and biological dynamics of a pristine alpine-boreal river system in Norway. A simultaneous collection of data on climate, hydrology, erosion, water chemistry, primary production, invertebrates and fish provides an unusual insight into the ecology of a watercourse ...
