About this book

Contributions deal with a wide spectrum of topics related to aquatic biodiversity in fields such as palaeolimnology, taxonomy, and fundamental and applied limnology. Reconnaissance chapters on management and cultural impact of water bodies are included. Published on the retirement of Prof Dumont as Editor-in-Chief of Hydrobiologia.
