  • Contains twelve papers that develop rational bases for sampling various aquatic ecosystems and assessing environmental hazards. The reader will benefit when designing sampling protocols for aquatic ecological surveys.
  • Freshwater outflow from rivers to the ocean has profound effects on the physical, chemical, and biological processes in coastal waters. It induces circulation patterns, modifies mixing processes, and influences nutrient supply to plants, thus affecting biomass production. The increased need for hydroelectric power, flood control, and irrigation of farmland has led to greater regulation of river flow, which may have signigicant ''down-stream'' consequences, such as changes in fish production. This book adopts a systems approach for modeling how marine ecosystems respond to natural and man-made changes in freshwater outflow, and also attempts to identify research priorities in coastal zone management.
  • Ecosystem analysis and ecological modelling is a rapidly developing interdisciplinary branch of science used in theoretical developments in ecology and having practical applications in environmental protection. In this book, the authors introduce new holistic, particularly cybernetic, concepts into ecosystem theory and modelling, and provide a concise treatment of mathematical modelling of freshwater ecosystems which covers methods, subsystem models, applications and theoretical developments. Part 1 begins with a brief introduction to the principles of systems theory and their applications to ecosystems, and provides a summary of various methods of systems analysis. In Part 11 emphasis is laid on the pelagic processesmore » in standing water, characterised by relatively uninvolved structures from which models can be readily developed. Part 111 describes applications of the technique of modelling to solutions of theoretical and practical problems, with different modelling methods and objectives being used in the various chapters. More recent developments in the methods and theory of ecosystem modelling are covered in Part 1V which also includes a discussion of future trends.« less
  • There has been a massive shift in governmental interest toward putting money into issues surrounding global change, including acidification of ecosystem. This book is the result of the 1992 Dahlem workshop with the stated objective of reviewing the knowledge base on acid rain impacts on aquatic ecosystems, highlight research questions requiring further study, and assessing the prospects for reversal of acidic deposition effects. The text is a series of review chapters with a group summary report for each unit of review chapters. Questions focused on include the following: can we differentiate between natural and anthropogenic acidification? How does acidification interactmore » with other contaminants that affect freshwater ecosystems? How does acidification affect biota and what are the influences of biota on acidification? Are Chemical and biological changes reversiable?« less
  • This book is based on a symposium held in May 1990, sponsored by NASA, US EPA, and the North American Benthological Society. It focuses on the potential interactions between climate change and freshwater ecosystems. The assumption of global warming 2-5 degrees occurring in the next century was presented to the authors by the editors, and each author was asked to comment on how this warming might affect their particular system or process of interest. The book deals primarily with streams in the USA. Other chapters deal with the following topics: mechanisms driving global climate change; remote sensing; wetlands; lakes; generalmore » issues related to water resources and regional studies as they apply to flowing water.« less
