About this book

Deals with the major zoological indicators used in paleolimnology.

This book is an excellent compendium of modern uses and techniques of various zoological indicators (other than protozoa, rotifers and sponges). The editors have done a superb job in keeping the chapters broadly focused and aimed at the introductory level, making the content of this volume accessible to other specialist and non-specialist alike from a variety of disciplines.
