About this book

Provides a continent-wide perspective on environmental problems in the context of a rapidly expanding human population.

Deforestation, exotic species, wetland degradation, hydro-development projects, fisheries exploitation, and pollution all pose serious threats to African lakes, rivers, and wetlands.... This book provides a synthesis of the state of our knowledge of selected ecosystems in Africa and indicates the desperate need for sustained, intensive, and extensive research into the workings of these understudied systems. - Patrick Osborne, International Center for Tropical Ecology; "An important asset of this work is the integration of the freshwater resources into the complex fabric of social structures of the many nations that utilize these resources." - Robert Wetzel, University of North Carolina
