    The primary purpose of this proceedings is to look at a common body of water shared by Canada and the US and to summarize knowledge about the dynamics of this system with a primary focus of land use, water management, and bridging the gap between researchers and the public. From the preface: Lake Champlain spans two states, Vermont and New York, ...

  • Lake Verevi, Estonia - A Highly Stratified Hypertrophic Lake

    The present book summarises investigations on Lake Verevi (surface 12.6 ha, mean depth 3.6 m), located in the Estonian town of Elva, initiated since 1929. The seventeen articles in this book deal with a wide range of questions, starting with a holistic overview of the ecological status, over assessments of long-term changes in biotic and abiotic ...

  • 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 ...

  • Monitoring and Modelling Lakes and Coastal Environments

    Lakes and costal wetlands play a vital role in global ecosystems. They provide a habitat for a wide variety of flora and fauna and help to maintain the life cycle of many species. Lakes and coastal wetlands all over the world are ideal places for human habitation, fisheries, industries, shipping and recreation. Habitat environments of lakes and ...

  • Ladoga and Onego - Great European Lakes

    Lakes Ladoga and Onego are the greatest lakes in Europe. With a surface area of 17891 km2 and a volume of 902 km3, the former is one of the top fifteen world’s freshwater lakes and is only slightly smaller than Lake Ontario. Lake Onego’s surface area is 9600 km2 and it has a volume of 292 km3. The watershed of Lake Ladoga (258000 km2) extends ...

  • Lake Veluwe, a Macrophyte-Dominated System under Eutrophication Stress

    The structure and functioning of eutrophicated aquatic ecosystems has received considerable attention from limnologists as well as water managers in recent years. Stress has often been on pelagic food webs of deeper lakes whilst littoral systems or shallower lakes have been less thoroughly investigated. Since Dutch aquatic systems are ...

  • The East African Great Lakes: Limnology, Palaeolimnology and Biodiversity

    This volume contains original research papers presented during the Second International Symposium on the Limnology, Climatology, Palaeoclimatology, and Biodiversity of the African Great Lakes, organized by the International Decade for the East African Lakes (IDEAL). The book provides a comprehensive coverage of the large lakes of the African Rift ...

  • Nutrient Dynamics and Retention in Land/Water Ecotones of Lowland, Temperate Lakes and Rivers

    Ecotones, or boundary zones between land and inland waters (such as lakes, streams and rivers), are the principal routes for transport of organic matter and nutrients across landscapes via physical and biological vectors. The ecotone is the place of cumulation and transformation of in situ production as well as of allochthonous material from ...

  • Reservoir Eutrophication: Preventive Management

    The overall objective of Reservoir Eutrophication: Preventive Management is to present the environmental and anthropogenic factors associated with the process of eutrophication and algal blooms in the Rio Verde reservoir and propose lake use and management technologies in order to minimize the problem. Eutrophication process in Rio Verde reservoir ...

  • Management and Ecology of Freshwater 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, physical, ...

  • Integrated Water Resource Management in Brazil

      The complex interactions between water resources, land-use change and water technologies are a major issue in many emerging countries of Southern America. Usable water resources are affected by natural conditions, such as, strong seasonal contrasts and high climatic variability, and rapid changes of land use and land cover that is caused by the ...

  • 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 ...

  • Man and River Systems

    The volume focuses on the ecological functioning of rivers, which has received less attention than functioning of lakes and reservoirs. The selected papers cover a large range of topics relating to aquatic communities, eutrophication, nutrient dynamics and organic pollution, erosion and sediment transport, and fate of micropollutants at the ...

  • Natural Water Treatment Systems for Safe and Sustainable Water Supply in the Indian Context: Saph Pani

    Natural Water Treatment Systems for Safe and Sustainable Water Supply in the Indian Context is based on the work from the Saph Pani project (Hindi word meaning potable water). The book aims to study and improve natural water treatment systems, such as River Bank Filtration (RBF), Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR), and wetlands in India, building ...

  • Wetland and Water Resource Modeling and Assessment: A Watershed Perspective

    As a wetland of international importance located in China ,the Poyang Lake Basin´s incredible topographical and biological diversity has provided a congregating point for scientists from around the world to engage in cross-disciplinary research. In particular, the International Conference on Poyang Lake Complex Environment System was instrumental ...

  • Pelagic Nutrient Cycles

    This volume elucidates the interactions between pelagic food web processes and element cycling in lakes. Some findings are examined in terms of classical concepts from the ecological theory of predator-prey systems. Special emphasis is given to exploring how stoichiometric relationships between primary producers and herbivores influence the ...

  • Wetland Landscape Characterization: GIS, Remote Sensing and Image Analysis

    This book was written to assist scientists, engineers, technicians and other resource managers in the evaluation of wetland boundaries and characteristics. Powerful tools - GIS, mapping, remote sensing - are described and demonstrated using practical applications and combined to yield landscape ecological data, and ecological risk assessments. ...
