  • Bioassessment of Freshwater Ecosystems

    Aquatic ecosystem assessment is a rapidly developing field, and one of the newer approaches to assessing the condition of rivers and lakes is the Reference Condition Approach. This is a significant advancement in biomonitoring because it solves the problem of trying to locate nearby control or reference sites when studying an ecosystem that may be ...

  • Ecotoxicological Testing of Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems: Emerging Techniques, Trends and Strategies

    Focusing on state-of-the-art biological testing and methods used for aquatic ecosystem health assessment, Ecotoxicological Testing of Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems evaluates the latest bioassay techniques and different types of water and sediment quality assessments. The book also explores multi-tiered approaches to making recommendations for ...

  • Freshwater Biomonitoring and Benthic Macroinvertebrates

    Biomonitoring is a vital and rapidly growing field. Freshwater Biomonitoring and Benthic Macroinvertebrates presents a state-of-the-art look at the use of benthic macroinvertebrates (aquatic insects, molluscs, crustaceans, and worms) in the biological assessment of water quality in lakes and streams. The use of these organisms has increased ...

  • Modelling Community Structure in Freshwater Ecosystems

    The book presents approaches and methodologies for predicting the structure and diversity of key aquatic communities (namely diatoms, benthic macroinvertebrates and fish), under natural conditions and under man-made disturbance. Such an approach will make it possible to: 1) set up procedures for robust and sensitive ecosystem evaluation, based on ...

  • Small-scale Freshwater Toxicity Investigations

    While toxicity testing procedures and hazard assessment approaches have been published in past decades, many are wanting in detail for users to fully understand or reproduce successfully. Small-scale Freshwater Toxicity Investigations (Volumes 1 and 2) responds to this need by providing comprehensive information on biological testing which is ...

  • 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 ...
