Intended for biology and environmental sciences students, this study of lake systems covers the physics, chemistry and biology of lakes. The text includes ecosystem examples to illustrate basic concepts in limnology. The examples are drawn from all over the world - Africa, the Americas, Antarctica, the Arctic, Europe, Japan and New Zealand. This wide array of examples allows the authors to point out marked differences in size, basin shape, climate and biota, while illustrating a unity of principles in limnology. The number of topics is limited so that major subjects - such as physical conditions within lake systems, applications to the LIST environment, and the success of big rivers, streams and estuaries - can be covered in more depth. This edition contains new chapters on wetlands and large rivers, while the chapters on light, phosphorus, phytoplankton and zooplankton have been revised. Further examples have also been added.
