Processes and Management

As pressures on Australia?s inland waters intensify from
population growth, expanding resource development and climate
change, there is an urgent need to manage and protect these special
areas. Understanding their ecology underpins their wise
management and conservation.

Australian Freshwater Ecology vividly describes the
physical, chemical and biological features of wetlands, lakes,
streams, rivers and groundwaters in Australia.  It presents
the principles of aquatic ecology linked to practical management
and conservation, and explains the causes, mechanisms, effects and
management of serious environmental problems such as altered water
regimes, eutrophication, salinization, acidification and

sedimentation of inland waters.

Key features:

  • contributions from a diverse, highly qualified team of aquatic
    ecologists whose expertise

    spans the ecology and management of standing and running waters in

  • sections covering groundwaters, biodiversity, temporary and
    tropical waters, climate

    change, invasive species and freshwater conservation

  • numerous Australian case-studies and guest ?text-boxes?
    showing management in practice

  • concise descriptions of ecological processes and conceptual models
    illustrated with

    original, high- quality diagrams and photographs

Readable and logically structured, this text supports
undergraduate and postgraduate courses in aquatic ecology and
management. It is a valuable reference for consultants, restoration
ecologists, water resource managers,

science teachers, and other professionals with an interest in the
ecology of surface and groundwaters.
