This book was written very clearly, taking a holistic approach to aquatic ecology that relates all of the biology and chemistry and physics that are at the heart of understanding these complex systems. Particularly appreciated all the references to the original papers and often very current research that the information in the text is pulled from.
Also many asides on human impact and politics, providing another layer of things to consider.
Great book! As seems to be the case with many current texts, this one makes full use of a variety of presentation methods: boxes, biographies, methods boxes and sidebars which, incidentally, are not on the side. Some are more successful than others.

As in much of ecology, they were often open to a variety of answers and we felt that they would be useful for promoting discussion amongst students. The authors are both primarily stream ecologists and one can often sense greater enthusiasm from them when lotic processes and organisms are discussed. Certain concepts e.

Basic scientific concepts and environmental applications featured throughout. Added coverage of climate change, ecosystem function, hypertrophic habitats and.
However, that said, the discussion of lentic environments is not short-changed and this text would serve any general undergraduate limnology course very well.
