About this book

Elsevier's Dictionary of Aquatic Biology contains terms related to marine and freshwater animals and plants and their environment. Terms from general biology and those related to water in some way or another are widely represented. Terms from the following applied fields are included: Water quality assessment, water purification, biotechnology, aquaculture, and - above all - commercial fisheries, and fish culture. Also included are main terms of laboratory technique and seamanship currently used in texts on fisheries and marine expeditions, as well as names of fishes, mammals, amphibians, waterfowl and water plants, and some geographical names, as far as they present difficulties for translation. The dictionary stems from the senior author's 40 years of experience as a professional translator and a professional biologist in the field of aquatic animals and plants. The junior author, a specialist in algology and mycology, also participated in all aspects of the compilation of this dictionary. This dictionary will be a useful tool for translators and scientists dealing with hydrobiology, ecology, oceanology, limnology, ichthyology, fisheries, and other applied fields. It will also contribute to a more precise understanding in this period of development of scientific and commercial communications between many countries of the world and Russia.

This remarkable compilation should be enormously useful, not only to Russian limnologists of all persuasions but also to all non-Russian scientists who wish to explore the Russian literature on aquatic biology at first hand. SILNEWS This comprehensive reference book will undoubtedly be an invaluable tool not only for translators, but also for scientists dealing with hydrobiology, ecology, oceanology, limnology, ichthylogy, fisheries and other applied fields.
