u003cpu003eu003ciu003eFreshwater Ecology, Second Editionu003c/iu003e, is a broad, up-to-date treatment of everything from the basic chemical and physical properties of water to advanced unifying concepts of the community ecology and ecosystem relationships as found in continental waters.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eWith 40% new and expanded coverage, this text covers applied and basic aspects of limnology, now with more emphasis on wetlands and reservoirs than in the previous edition. It features 80 new and updated figures, including a section of color plates, and 500 new and updated references. The authors take a synthetic approach to ecological problems, teaching students how to handle the challenges faced by contemporary aquatic scientists.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eThis text is designed for undergraduate students taking courses in Freshwater Ecology and Limnology; and introductory graduate students taking courses in Freshwater Ecology and Limnology.u003c/pu003e u003cbru003e u003cbru003e u003culu003e u003cliu003eExpanded revision of Dodds' successful text.u003c/liu003e u003cliu003eNew boxed sections provide more advanced material within the introductory, modular format of the first edition.u003c/liu003e u003cliu003eBasic scientific concepts and environmental applications featured throughout.u003c/liu003e u003cliu003eAdded coverage of climate change, ecosystem function, hypertrophic habitats and secondary production.u003c/liu003e u003cliu003eExpanded coverage of physical limnology, groundwater and wetland habitats. u003c/liu003e u003cliu003eExpanded coverage of the toxic effects of pharmaceuticals and endocrine disrupters as freshwater pollutantsu003c/liu003e u003cliu003eMore on aquatic invertebrates, with more images and pictures of a broader range of organismsu003c/liu003e u003cliu003eExpanded coverage of the functional roles of filterer feeding, scraping, and shredding organisms, and a new section on omnivores.u003c/liu003e u003cliu003eExpanded appendix on standard statistical techniques.u003c/liu003e u003cliu003eSupporting website with figures and tables - http://www.elsevierdirect.com/companion.jsp?ISBN=9780123747242u003c/liu003e u003c/ulu003e
