Intended for junior/senior level students in biology and environmental sciences, this best-selling 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. The authors are selective in presentation and coverage of topics, making the text perfectly suited for a one-semester introduction to this science.
