About this book

Designed to be used in both fields with equal success this book covers all the key issues of limnology while the structure and underlying concepts are those found in ecology.

This second edition builds upon the strengths of the first with the structure of the book following the same hierarchical concept of ecology, from habitat properties, individuals, populations, coupled populations and communities to ecosystems. However, it has been thoroughly revised throughout to incorporate findings from new technologies and methods (notably the rapid development of molecular genetic methods and stable isotope techniques) that have allowed a rapid and ongoing development of the field. There is a new emphasis on food webs, species diversity and ecosystem functioning, climate change, and conservation management. Key ecological questions are examined in the light of the latest experimental evidence.

Throughout the text evolutionary theory is applied to an understanding of freshwater ecosystems, thereby filling a niche between traditional limnology and evolutionary ecology.

Media reviews

'...an excellent text that I would not hesitate to use for teaching courses in ecology and limnology...Lampert and Sommer's updated Limnoecology will make an excellent resource for students of aquatic ecology at all stages. I have often handed the first edition to my starting graduate students to read. Now I have an updated version that will be even more useful.' Volume 16 (4), December 2007
