Freshwater Ecology and Conservation : Approaches and Techniques Hardback
Edited by Jocelyne Hughes
Part of the Techniques in Ecology & Conservation series
This practical manual of freshwater ecology and conservation provides a state-of-the-art review of the approaches and techniques used to measure, monitor, and conserve freshwater ecosystems.
It offers a single, comprehensive, and accessible synthesis of the vast amount of literature for freshwater ecology and conservation that is currently dispersed in manuals, toolkits, journals, handbooks, 'grey' literature, and websites.
Successful conservation outcomes areultimately built on a sound ecological framework in which every species must be assessed and understood at the individual, community, catchment and landscape level of interaction.
For example, freshwater ecologists need to understand hydrochemical storages and fluxes, the physical systems influencingfreshwaters at the catchment and landscape scale, and the spatial and temporal processes that maintain species assemblages and their dynamics.
A thorough understanding of all these varied processes, and the techniques for studying them, is essential for the effective conservation and management of freshwater ecosystems.
