Media reviews

I recommend this book to all freshwater ecologists (Freshwater Forum, No.18 2002)

"The 4th Edition Continues to be an excellent treatise about the adaptation of invertebrates to freshwater environments." (Journal of the North American Benthological Society, June 2002)

."..The book is beautifully produced, will be a boon to North American users, and a means of broadening the knowledge of students everywhere." (The Naturalist)

"Such a practical writing style makes the book easy to use and a perfect, one of its kind, laboratory manual." ("Quarterly Review of Biology", September 2002)
