Summary: ''Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the latest edition of Thorp and Covich. I have admired prior editions of this superb book for its comprehensive coverage of freshwater invertebrates. The current edition improves upon the high standard set by prior editions through the use of color and greater taxonomic specificity. Authored by an outstanding collection of experts, individual chapters provide comprehensive coverage of morphology, physiology and ecology, as well as methods ...show more for collecting, rearing and preserving freshwater invertebrates. Together with chapters on ecology and habitats of inland waters, this carefully edited volume provides the central knowledge of freshwater invertebrates that every student and researcher will find invaluable. I highly recommend this superb new edition of Thorp and Covich - it is a must-own volume that every student and researcher of freshwater invertebrates will find invaluable.'' J. David Allan, Ph.D. Professor and Acting Dean School of Natural Resources and Environment The University of Michigan *** ''This 3rd edition contains a wealth of information, which has expanded its utility beyond the earlier editions. Thorp and Covich gathered the recognized experts in North America to compile the full extent of current knowledge on this diverse group of aquatic fauna. The color plates are amazing and add tremendous value to both the learner and learned of the invertebrate biologists.'' Michael T. Barbour, PhD Director, Center for Ecological Studies Tetra Tech, Owings Mills, Maryland *** ''At last, after half a century, this new edition of Thorp and Covich is a worthy successor to Edmondson's (1957) classic second edition of Ward and Whipple's Freshwater Biology. It brings us up to date on the amazing advances in the biology of freshwater invertebrates, the keys are detailed, and the illustrations as beautiful as they are useful.'' Nelson G.
