About this book

A derivative of the Encyclopedia of Inland Waters, Biogeochemistry of Inland Waters examines the transformation, flux and cycling of chemical compounds in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, combining aspects of biology, ecology, geology, and chemistry. Because the articles are drawn from an encyclopedia, they are easily accessible to interested members of the public, such as conservationists and environmental decision makers. Biogeochemistry of Inland Waters includes an up-to-date summary of global aquatic ecosystems and issues. It covers current environmental problems and management solutions. It features full-color figures and tables to support the text and aid in understanding.
