Continuing concern about water supply and quality, ecosystemsustainability and restoration demands that the modern approach tothe management of lakes and reservoirs should be based on a soundunderstanding of the application of the scientific and ecologicalprinciples that underlie freshwater processes.
The Lakes Handbook provides an up-to-date overview of theapplication of ecologically sound approaches, methods and toolsusing experience gained around the world for an understanding oflakes and their management. Volume one of the Handbook addressesthe physical and biological aspects of lakes pertinent to lakemanagement, emphasising those aspects particularly relevant tolarge, still bodies of water. Volume two then considers lakemanagement, with particular emphasis on sustainability, restorationand rehabilitation.
This handbook will be invaluable to ecologists, environmentalscientists, physical geographers and hydrologists involved inlimnological research, as well as advanced undergraduate andgraduate students looking for authoritative reviews of the keyareas of limnological study.
