Summary
Lakes and rivers of the tropics are rich with variety and human relevance, yet do not figure prominently in surveys of general freshwater biology and limnology. In this book the authors take a generalized view, on a world-wide scale, that is dynamic and quantitative in outlook. They set out to integrate events and processes under tropical conditions, not only geographically but also within a continuum of physics, chemistry and biology. The volume contains numerous illustrations and detailed documentation of literature. Together the two authors provide a foundation that will be of value to all who work with tropical inland waters, with interests ranging from water quality to fisheries. The volume will also have an appeal to those researchers, teachers and students in limnology and freshwater biology everywhere who are curious about the tropical implication and application of their subject
