About this book

Estuaries of South Africa presents an authoritative and comprehensive review of the current status of the country's estuarine research and management.

Information is provided on a wide range of topics, including geological, physical and chemical processes, diversity and productivity of plant and animal communities, interactions between estuarine organisms, and system properties, ecological modelling and current management issues. This broad scope is complemented by a comparative perspective, resulting in a volume which provides a unique contribution to the subject of estuarine ecology, relevant to all those working in this field throughout the world.

Paperback re-issue; originally published in 1999.
