  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Modern Trends in Applied Aquatic Ecology

    This volume brings together some of the foremost leaders in the field of aquatic ecology. Chapter topics include research on management of wetlands, hydrochemical determinism, biomonitoring and bioindicators in aquatic ecosystems, and environmental impacts of dam projects. This volume is essential reading for professionals and researchers in the ...

  • Native Aquatic Bacteria: Enumeration, Activity, and Ecology

    A broad yet specific discussion of the theoretical basis and practical problems of current methods in aquatic microbiology. The first two sections address the problem of how to arrive at an accurate enumeration of the bacteria present in aquatic environments. The third section describes and evaluates methods for measuring specific metabolic ...

  • Ecological Restoration of Aquatic and Semi-Aquatic Ecosystems in The Netherlands (NW Europe)

    This work presents the state of the art of aquatic and semi-aquatic ecological restoration projects in The Netherlands. Starting from the conceptual basis of restoration ecology, the successes and failures of hundreds of restoration projects are described. Numerous successful projects are mentioned. In general ecological restoration endeavours ...

  • Aquatic Telemetry

    This volume provides a selection of the most significant papers presented at the Fourth Conference on Fish Telemetry in Europe, in Trondheim, Norway, in 2001. Papers are focused on migratory patterns and habitat utilisation, social behaviour, physiological ecology, fisheries management, effects of human impact on fish populations, aquaculture and ...

  • Ecological Assessments of Effluent Impacts on Communities of Indigenous Aquatic Organisms

    Authoritative information ranges from environmental impact analysis of aquatic ecosystems using rational threshold value methodologies to annual macroinvertebrate sampling--a low cost tool for ecological assessment of effluent ...

  • Ecological Informatics

    Ecological Informatics promotes interdisciplinary research between ecology and computer science on elucidation of principles of information processing in ecosystems, ecological sustainability by informed decision making, and bio-inspired computation. The 2nd edition of the book consolidates the scope, concepts, and techniques of this newly ...

  • Stream Ecology

    Stream Ecology by Allan and Castillo is extensively revised and updated from the successful first edition to include major developments over the past decade. Although the subject matter is relatively advanced, this book has been written with the express goal of being accessible to students with only modest backgrounds in ecology and aquatic ...

  • Chemical Ecology

    Chemical ecology is the ecology of body odour. Every organism uses chemical information in intra- and inter-specific interactions. Animals emit chemicals to attract a mate or to prevent a competitor from mating with the partner they just mated with. Plants emit chemicals to recruit other organisms to take care of their sex life or to attract ...

  • New Improvements in the Aquatic Ecological Risk Assessment of Fungicidal Pesticides and Biocides

    In Europe, the current data requirements for pesticides and biocides are generally regarded to be suitable for the risk assessment of chemicals with an insecticidal and herbicidal mode of action. However, the effects of fungicides, in particular on freshwater microbial communities, are not well known despite the fact that fungi play a key role in ...

  • Diapause in Aquatic Invertebrates

    Dormancy is a suspension of the vital functions in an organism to overcome harsh environmental conditions, and sometimes can last for centuries. It is a widespread adaptation in many phyla, ranging from bacteria to vertebrates, and may exert a great influence on aquatic communities.Contributors to this new book are leaders in the field of diapause ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...

  • Ecology of Harmful Algae

    Harmful algal blooms are one of the consequences of the human impact on aquatic ecosystems, particularly the process of eutrophication. They can cause a variety of deleterious effects, including the poisoning of fish and shellfish, habitat disruptions for many organisms, water discolouration, beach fouling, and even toxic effects for humans.This ...

  • Ecology of Shallow Lakes

    Ecology of Shallow Lakes brings together current understanding of the mechanisms that drive the diametrically opposite states of water clarity, shown by the cover paintings, found in many shallow lakes and ponds. It gives an outline of the knowledge gained from field observations, experimental work, and restoration studies, linked by a solid ...

  • 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 ...

  • Aquatic Oligochaete Biology V

    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 ...
