Summary: Freshwater Ecology covers both basic and applied aspects of limnology. Written for undergraduates, it serves as an introduction to the study of aquatic ecology. Fundamental features of groundwater, wetland, stream, and lake habitats are reviewed in an accessibly written text. Issues of spatial and temporal scale, anthropogenic impacts, and application of current ecological concepts are covered along with other concepts and ideas that are presented in more traditional more limnology texts. Chapters on biodiversity, toxic chemicals, extreme and unusual habitats, and fisheries increase the breadth of the volume. The book provides an extensive background on freshwater ecosystems that will be useful both to those pursuing advanced coursework and to those whose work involves freshwater ecosystems. It explicitly recognizes that understanding aquatic systems requires a holistic approach that includes watersheds, groundwaters, streams, wetlands, and lakes.
