Second Edition

Winfried Lampert and Ulrich Sommer

  • Applies evolutionary theory to an understanding of freshwater ecosystems, thereby filling a niche between traditional limnology and evolutionary ecology

New to this Edition:

  • Thoroughly revised throughout to incorporate findings from new technologies and methods (notably the rapid development of molecular genetic methods and stable isotope techniques) that have allowed a rapid and ongoing development of the field.
  • New emphasis on food webs, species diversity and ecosystem functioning, climate change, conservation, and management
