About this book

A derivative of the "Encyclopedia of Inland Waters", "Plankton of Inland Waters" covers protists, bacteria, fungi, algae, and zooplankton as well as the functional and system interactions of planktonic and attached forms in aquatic ecosystems. Because the articles are drawn from an encyclopedia, the articles are easily accessible to interested members of the public, such as conservationists and environmental decision makers. This title includes an up-to-date summary of global aquatic ecosystems and issues. It covers current environmental problems and management solutions. It features full-color figures and tables to support the text and aid in understanding.
