Summary The rapid growth of the discipline of aquatic ecology has been driven both by scientific interest in the complexities of aquatic ecosystems and by their enormous environmental importance and sensitivity. The Structuring Role of Submerged Macrophytes in Lakes focuses on the remarkably diverse roles played by underwater plants. The book is divided into three parts: 10 thematic chapters, followed by 18 case studies, concluded by three integrative chapters. The topics range from macrophytes as fish food to macrophytes as mollusk and microbe habitat. The consistent theme is the structuring role of plants in lakes. The book will be of interest to aquatic ecologists as well as limnologists, ecosystem ecologists, microbial ecologists, fish biologists, and environmental managers with responsibilities that include lakes.
