About this Textbook

In this thoroughly updated third edition, the authors have provided a series of carefully designed and tested field and laboratory exercises that represent the full scope of limnology. In using this text, students will gain a solid foundation in this complex, multidisciplinary field of ecology as they explore the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of standing and running waters. Limnological Analyses, Third Edition illustrates accepted standard methods as well as modern metabolic and experimental approaches and their research applications. Each exercise is preceded by an introductory section and concludes with questions for students as well as suggestions for further reading. As a textbook, Limnological Analyses, Third Edition is a highly structured, concise presentation with a research-oriented approach that openly invites active participation by students.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"Designed to accommodate undergraduates with diverse backgrounds, this text provides an excellent introduction to limnological methods and problems. … In other words, this book was written to be used in the classroom, the laboratory, and the field! … Many line drawings, graphs, and B/W photographs provided. Amply referenced, this book should be considered by professional limnologists, especially those looking for an excellent undergraduate textbook." (Northeastern Naturalist, Vol. 12 (2), 2005)

"This is the third edition of this well known text book on limnological methods. … This book is written for students but also for the teachers and is meanwhile a standard volume … and a starting point for independent scientific work. Without doubt all students and teachers should have access to this book. … I would recommend that if you already do not have this book, it is worth more than ever to buy it." (Norbert Walz, International Review of Hydrobiology, Vol. 86 (1), 2001)
