Summary
"From the mysterious depths of Lake Vostok, Antarctica, to tropical floodplain lakes, inland bodies of water share many distinctive features. How are they formed? Can 'dead lakes' be revived? What can lakes tell us about Earth's past and present? Warwick Vincent explains the main aspects of lake science, or limnology. Using examples from across the world, he describes the environmental features and ecology of lakes, and their value to society. Outlining the mportance of sustaining these complex ecosystems, he considers the impact of factors such as climate, seasons, salinity, and oxygen on lake biodiversity, and the threats imposed by rising human populations and climate change." --Inside cover
