Kalff (biology, McGill U.) presents an introductory textbook to the study of lakes, rivers, and wetlands as ecological systems. Chapters look at the effects of a number of factors in the ecology of inland water systems, including light, pollution, climate change, temperature cycles, acidification, nitrogen cycling, bacteria, fish and water birds, particle sedimentation, and water movements. Each of these topics is addressed separately in one of 29 chapters, although introductory material does address the interrelationship of the various factors. Annotation c.
