About this book

The book's subject is a comprehensive ecological insight into a natural ecosystem that was strongly modified by human intervention and its management has a significant impact on water, agricultural, natural and touristic resources. The anthropogenic and natural impacts on the ecosystem are crucial for the sustainability of the regional economy and national water supply. The chapters are giving a scientific-descriptive information on long term natural and anthropogenic processes. The presented information is a thorough guideline of long term human experience of intervention in natural ecosystem structure with indications for predicted sustainability. The book chapters cover topics of hydrology and eco-hydrology, limnology, geochemistry, underground waters, peat soil chemistry and degradation, natural resources of plants and animal (emphasizing birds) agricultural developments and the introduction of eco-tourism into the management design.
