Originally published in 1983, the book is a unique, comprehensive analysis of a lake ecosystem. It summarizes and integrates results from the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study, one of the most extensive long-term studies of a watershed ever undertaken. The volume integrates the ecology and biogeochemistry of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to describe the interactions of Mirror Lake with its watershed and airshed.
This comprehensive work presents an enormous data base and reference listing. As a model study in limnology, it is an essential text-reference for both the student and the practicing researcher.
