Summary Continuing to provide an excellent and comprehensive overview, the third edition of Biology of Freshwater Pollution has been updated and revised on all aspects of pollution, since the success of the second edition in 1991. Key features for this edition include 300 new references covering latest research; new sections on biomarkers, neoplasms and effects of global warming; incorporation of new developments in European and UK water resource management; a mathematical model of eutrophication re-instated from the first edition, giving an excellent example of using a simple model for lake management; more work on the Great Lakes, particularly on PCBs; updated case studies of the River Ebbw Fawr and the Rhine, indicating a more positive view of long term recovery, as well as clearly drawing out themes of chronic and episodic pollution.
Written for undergraduate and postgraduate students of Aquatic and Applied Biology, Limnology, Environmental Science and scientists working in the water industry.
Subject Freshwater biology -- Great Britain.
