Australian Freshwater Ecology

As pressures on Australia’s inland waters intensify frompopulation growth, expanding resource development and climatechange, there is an urgent need to manage and protect these specialareas. Understanding their ecology underpins their wisemanagement and conservation. Australian Freshwater Ecology vividly describes thephysical, chemical and biological features of wetlands, lakes,streams, rivers and groundwaters in Australia. It presentsthe principles of aquatic ecology linked to practical managementand conservation, and explains the causes, mechanisms, effects andmanagement of serious environmental problems such as altered waterregimes, eutrophication, salinization, acidification and sedimentation of inland waters. Key features: contributions from a diverse, highly qualified team of aquaticecologists whose expertise spans the ecology and management of standing and running waters inAustralia sections covering groundwaters, biodiversity, temporary andtropical waters, climate change, invasive species and freshwater conservation numerous Australian case-studies and guest ‘text-boxes’showing management in practice concise descriptions of ecological processes and conceptual modelsillustrated with original, high- quality diagrams and photographs Readable and logically structured, this text supports undergraduateand postgraduate courses in aquatic ecology and management. It is avaluable reference for consultants, restoration ecologists, waterresource managers, science teachers, and other professionals with an interest in theecology of surface and groundwaters.
