About this book

Wetzel's Limnology: Lake and River Ecosystems, fourth edition, presents a fully updated revision of the classic textbook Limnology: Lake and River Ecosystems – last published in 2001, after the lead author Robert G. Wetzel passed away in 2005. The coverage has been thoroughly updated with recent research and theoretical developments. Each chapter of this edited volume has been written by an expert, or team of experts, providing a comprehensive and global perspective, with the editors working closely with the authors to maintain continuity within and between the chapters. This is not only an essential textbook for undergraduate and graduate students in limnology but also a standard reference book for seasoned limnologists and other scientists.

Media reviews

Review of the third edition:

"This newest edition is marked not only by substantial reworking, updating, and addition but also by the maturation of the author's understanding of freshwater ecosystems, and understanding that has been amassed from years of study and analysis of his own and others' research. [...] the author's ability to put the tremendous array of subjects into context is nothing short of remarkable. [...] this book is a timely and masterful revision, and it should be on the shelf and in the classroom of every practicing freshwater algal ecologist and limnologist."
– Carole E. Lembi, Dept of Botany and Plant Pathology, Purdue University, in Journal of Physiological Ecology (2001)
