About this book

Lakes and rivers of the tropics are rich with variety and human relevance, yet do not figure prominently in surveys of general freshwater biology and limnology. The fruits of their scientific exploration are largely embodied in regional and specialist descriptions and analyses. In Ecological Dynamics of Tropical Inland Waters the authors take a generalized view, on a world-wide scale, that is dynamic and quantitative in outlook. They set out to integrate events and processes under tropical conditions, not only geographically but also within a continuum of physics, chemistry and biology, so providing a foundation that will be of value to all who study and work with tropical inland waters.

First published in 1998.

Media reviews

"[...] a valuable acquisition for those who research in the tropics, and for lecturers in freshwater biology."
- Roland Bailey, Journal of Ecology

" [...] this book is an extremely valuable reference work, which should be the starting point for any student or ecological professionals embarking on tropical limnological projects."
- Keith M. Martin-Smith, Journal of Animal Ecology

"If you want a straightforward introduction to the literature on tropical limnology, then start here."
- Mike Dobson, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society

"[...] will be of considerable value to researchers and students in limnology and freshwater biology everywhere and is of special important to those responsible for managing tropical inland waters."
- John Melak, Freshwater Biology

"[...] useful reading for undergraduate and graduate students interested in aquatic ecology (tropical or otherwise)."
- Harvey A. Bootsma, Limnology and Oceanography
