Modelling Community Structure in Freshwater Ecosystems

Edited by S Lek, M Scardi, P F M Verdonschot, J P Descy and Y S Park 
Springer  2005  

Hardcover  XII + 518 p.  ISBN 9783540239406      £224.00
The book, which includes a CD-ROM, presents approaches and methodologies for predicting the structure and diversity of key aquatic communities (namely diatoms, benthic macroinvertebrates and fish), under natural conditions and under manmade disturbance. Such an approach will make it possible to:
    set up procedures for robust and sensitive ecosystem evaluation, based on the prediction of the expected community structure
    model community structure in disturbed ecosystems, taking into account all the relevant ecological variables
    test ecosystem sensitivity to natural and anthropic disturbance, and
    explore specific actions to be taken for the restoration of ecosystem integrity.
Written for scientists, researchers, libraries, institutes in the fields of ecology, environmental sciences, ecosystem management, water management and modelling.
