About this book

From the preface:

"The large disparity between limnological understanding of inland waters of temperate regions and of developing countries. particularly in tropical areas, has been recognized for many years. The members of SH have recognized a number of deficiencies, particularly associated with the availability of information and training.

The problem of access to literature faced by workers and students in limnology from developing countries has been identified as a major obstacle retarding the progress of limnology in such countries. At the 25th Congress of SIL in Barcelona under the initiation of  M. Burgis and others. the SIL agreed to produce reference materials that could alleviate the paucity of literature on lake and river analyses and management. These Occasional Publications of SIL would be comprised of identification keys to the various groups of aquatic biota. fundamental treatments of methods for physical and chemical limnology, and reviews of the current state of knowledge of limnological subjests of interest to developing countries. The latter syntheses are appearing in a book series entitled Limnology of Developing Countries, edited by B. Gopal and R.G. Wetzel. The first volume was issued in 1996, and several additional volumes have been completed.

This second issue of the limnological methods section of the Occasional Publications of SIL addresses the taxonomy of the gastropods of Lake Tanganyika, central East Africa. The level is aimed at the undergraduate/masters level of students and workers in developing countries. Our intentions are to minimize the complexity of the material in order to maximize their functional usefuhiess both in instruction and in taxonomic evaluations. In addition. we also hope to produce documents which are truly available to users in terms of cost and accessibility. [...]"
