Salmonine Introductions To The Laurentian Great Lakes by Stephen Scott Crawford

Original Title: Salmonine Introductions To The Laurentian Great Lakes

The introduction of salmonines to the Great Lakes date back to the 1870s, when natural populations of native salmonines in the Great Lakes were in severe decline. This title presents an historical review and evaluation of documented ecological effects associated with salmonine introductions to the Laurentian Great Lakes.

Ecotoxicology And Environmental Pollution by Bruce Horak

Original Title: Ecotoxicology And Environmental Pollution

Ecotoxicology is the study of the effects of pollutants present in the atmosphere on population, wildlife and the environment. This book discusses the imminent dangers that are faced by our ecosystem due to long-term waste mismanagement and pollution. Environmental pollution is adversely affecting all forms of life. It has become a growing concern for researchers and scientists all around the world. Research in this area focuses on the impact of exotoxins on wildlife and resources and strategies of survival and adaptation. This book discusses the fundamentals as well as modern approaches of tackling environmental pollution. It consists of contributions made by international experts. The topics included herein are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to the readers. With state-of-the-art inputs by acclaimed experts of this field, this book targets students and professionals.

Assessment And Remediation Of Contaminated Sediments by Danny Reible

Original Title: Assessment And Remediation Of Contaminated Sediments

In this text, drawn from presentations and discussion at a May 2005 NATO Advanced Research Workshop, current approaches to the assessment and remediation of contaminated sediments are discussed with emphasis on in-situ management. The text addresses physical, chemical and biological approaches for the assessment and remediation of sediments. The development of regulatory and strategic approaches is discussed with emphasis on the potential for biological remediation in the management of contaminated sediments.

The Ecology Of Phytoplankton by C. S. Reynolds

Original Title: The Ecology Of Phytoplankton

Communities of microscopic plant life, or phytoplankton, dominate the Earth's aquatic ecosystems. This important new book by Colin Reynolds covers the adaptations, physiology and population dynamics of phytoplankton communities in lakes and rivers and oceans. It provides basic information on composition, morphology and physiology of the main phyletic groups represented in marine and freshwater systems and in addition reviews recent advances in community ecology, developing an appreciation of assembly processes, co-existence and competition, disturbance and diversity. Although focussed on one group of organisms, the book develops many concepts relevant to ecology in the broadest sense, and as such will appeal to graduate students and researchers in ecology, limnology and oceanography.

Aquatic Biodiversity Ii by H. Segers

Original Title: Aquatic Biodiversity Ii

Freshwater Biodiversity is a much underestimated component of global biodiversity, both in its diversity and in its potential to act as models for fundamental research in evolutionary biology and ecosystem studies. Freshwater organisms also reflect quality of water bodies and can thus be used to monitor changes in ecosystem health. The present book comprises a unique collection of primary research papers spanning a wide range of topics in aquatic biodiversity studies, and including a first global assessment of specific diversity of freshwater animals. The book also presents a section on the interaction between scientists and science policy managers. A target opinion paper lists priorities in aquatic biodiversity research for the next decade and several reactions from distinguished scientists discuss the relevance of these items from different points of view: fundamental ecology, taxonomy and systematics, needs of developing countries, present-day biodiversity policy at European and at global scales. It is believed that such a platform for the interaction between science and science policy is an absolute necessity for the efficient use of research budgets in the future.

Zooplankton by George Kehayias

Original Title: Zooplankton

Zooplankton organisms comprise very important elements of the structure and function of marine and freshwater ecosystems, not only as consumers of primary production, but also as food items for juvenile stages of several fish species. Moreover, its sensitivity to both man-made and natural changes makes zooplankton quite suitable for assessing alterations in the trophic dynamics and the ecological state of aquatic ecosystems related to changes in nutrient loading and climate. Multi-scale, spatial and temporal relationships between zooplankton variability and environmental heterogeneity are still not satisfactorily understood due to the complexity of the different aquatic ecosystems (considering both biotic and abiotic elements). Thus, the ambition of the present edition is to contribute to the understanding of the role of zooplankton by investigating ecological aspects such as the species diversity, their spatial distribution and seasonal dynamics in relation to the environmental influence in various aquatic ecosystems around the world. Topics discussed in this book include the understanding of the role of zooplankton in the transfer of pollutants through trophic food webs; plankton models to explain red tides; spatial patterns of trophy and zooplankton communities in a tropical urban reservoir; the zooplankton variation in five Greek lakes; the zooplankton community in a nuclear power station cooling reservoir; the spatio-temporal dynamics of cladocera and copepoda in the Danube River; the gelatinous zooplankton in the Namibian upwelling region; and the zooplankton community in relation to the environmental factors in a solar saltern.
