About this book

The Middle Parana River, one of the largest rivers in the world, is exceptionally rich in fauna and flora and provides researchers a glimpse into an ecosystem yet undisturbed by human civilization.

Covering the key aspects of fluvial limnology and ecology related to the river, this book is arranged in the following four sections:
The Physical and Chemical Environment;
Plant Life;
Invertebrate Animal Life;
Vertebrate Animal Life.

This in-depth and up-to-date review encapsulates 40 years of detailed study by researchers at the Instituto Nacional de Limnologia (INALI, CONICET-UNL, Argentina), an internationally renowned institution almost exclusively devoted to the exploration of the Middle Parana, the most important 600-km-long reach of the river.

From the reviews: "The authors have counted 216 different fish species inhabiting the different parts of the river, lakes, and floodplains in the river drainage. ! Each chapter is followed by a literature index; a general subject index ! . The data are relevant for all people dealing with the flora or fauna of this habitat type." (Solingen Haro Hieronimus, Bulletin of fish Biology, Vol. 9 (1/2), 2008) "Here is an approachable text that is a fascinating read for both specialists in the field and general naturalists. This is an important and fascinating glimpse into one of the world's most undisturbed ecosystems. ! All the key aspects of the Middle Parana's fluvial limnology and ecology are fully explored. ! This brilliant book covers all the key aspects of the Parana's fluvial limnology and ecology, arranged in discrete and easily navigable sections." (Pecescriollos, December, 2008)
