Freshwater biology takes on a different edge when that freshwater is standing rather than running through an ecosystem. The authors (both ecology, U. of Lund) combine traditional limnology with current ecological and evolutionary theory, describing the abiotic frame and adaptations to cope with abiotic constraints and the organisms as actors within the abiotic frame. They turn to the biotic element, describing competition, herbivory, predation, parasitism and symbiosis, food wb interactions in freshwater ecosystems, biodiversity and environmental threats. Generously illustrated, this could serve as an undergraduate text or references. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
