Fundamentals of Aquatic Ecology, Second Edition
Richard S K Barnes and Ken H Mann
Paperback 280pp, 137 illus ISBN 9780632029839
Fundamentals of Aquatic Ecology is a completely updated and revised edition of the earlier work,
Fundamentals of Aquatic Ecosystems. The new edition has been re-titled to reflect the fact that
the authors found that, from the modification exercise, a completely different and new book emerged.
The new edition concentrates heavily of the fundamental features common to all aquatic systems,
both marine and freshwater. This unique synthesis allows for the discussion of ecological processes
comparatively, across environments. A general introduction is followed by discussion of various 'types' of
aquatic ecosystems - open waters, coastal zones, benthos, and the aquatic ecosystem as a whole. This is
followed by an important new chapter on aquatic ecosystems and global ecology.
Later chapters consider
the individuals and communities in aquatic ecosystems.
