    In this lesson you will understand the term limnology and what it encompasses. You’ll also understand the meaning of the word ‘ecosystem’ and get an introduction to ecosystems in lakes and rivers.

Rivers are recognized as major natural resources, not only as sources of domestic, industrial and agricultural water and hydro-electric power, but also for food production and increasingly for recreation and tourist promotion.

This awareness has led to increased study of lotic limnology. Limnology is conventionally divided into two groups-lentic, standing or still water habits and lotic or running water habitats.

The lotic follows a gradient from springs to mountain brooks to streams to rivers. The lentic involves a gradient from lakes to ponds to bogs, swamps and marshes. Limnology deal with the study of fresh waters contained within continental boundaries.

Limnology evolved into a distinct science only in the past century, integrating physical, chemical and biologicalFile Size: 5MB. Introduction to Limnology contains more biology, ecology, and human-environmental connections than other such books on the market.

The text emphasizes aquatic ecology, with a wide range of ecological fields represented, including: landscape, ecosystem, physiological, population, community, and biome.

Book Description Limnology provides an in-depth and current overview of the field of limnology. The result of a major tour de force by two renowned and experienced experts, this unique and richly illustrated reference presents a wealth of data on limnology history.

1) Length - Lotic Limnology book book is of a manageable size for a one-semester intro to limnology course. 2) Chapter lengths - with only a couple of exceptions, the chapters are reasonable length. 3) International focus - Kalff uses examples from just about everywhere, including polar to Cited by:   The interdisciplinary nature of limnology requires lucid and well-integrated coverage of biology, chemistry, physics, earth science, and resource management.

Paul Weihe skillfully accomplishes this objective in his revision of Gerald Cole’s classic limnology text. Written from an ecosystem perspective, this user-friendly and thorough book discusses, without the use of jargon, events that happen below the waterline of lakes, rivers, and wetlands and links them back to the attributers of the drainage basins, the overlying atmosphere and climate, which have a major impact on inland waters and their biota.

The concern over deterioration of watercourses as a result of poor land utilization and their use as repositories for man's rejectamenta has stimulated research into the basic dynamics of the river. INTRODUCTION. The word limnology was derived from the two Greek words limne meaning lake and logos meaning study and is considered as a part of ecology.

It covers the biological, chemical, physical, geological and other attributes of all inland waters, both lotic as well as lentic ecosystems. Limnology can be defined in several ways, but it is important to recognize that the discipline involves the study of both freshwater and saline inland waters.

As noted in Table and discussed in detail throughout this synthesis, some 45% of the inland surface waters of the land masses of the world are saline.

Although saline lakes are of less practical importance to human activities, they. Wetlands in a Dry Land: Understanding for Management Edited by W.D. Williams. Environment Australia, Canberra, ISBN X This book has 35 papers addressing issues and constraints to wetland management in Australia.
