Now in its second edition, Pollution of Lakes and Rivers provides essential insights into present-day water quality problems from an international perspective. Explains simply and effectively how lake sediments can be used to reconstruct pollution history Includes over 200 additional references and a new chapter on recent climatic change and its effects on water quality and quantity Tackles present-day water quality problems from an international perspective Previously published by Hodder Arnold PowerPoint slides of the artwork from the book are available from: http://post.queensu.ca/~pearl/textbook.htm Reviews: "This is a very well-written and wide-ranging volume that is both instructive and topical. It is likely to prove useful as an introduction to the general area, a reference source and for teaching purposes." (The Holocene, November 2008) "If you thought that paleolimnology was just mud, pollen, and diatoms then you will likely be both struck by the complexity of this field of research and grateful that John Smol, FRSC, has described it so clearly and broadly. Simply put, the second edition is an excellent book." ( Journal of Phycology, 2008) “This is a useful text. It provides a good level of detail so that the beginner in this area can appreciate what palaeolimnology can (and cannot) achieve. It goes beyond the simple introduction to provide a detailed understanding of how techniques can be applied ... This is a different take on the usual pollution text and would be of great use to those wishing to understand more from sedimentary records.” Taken from the British Ecological Society’s Teaching Ecology website "John Smol has extensive experience in this field of paleoenvironmental research which he combines well with his excellent written communication skills to produce a text that is easy to read but also thought provoking." (Quaternary Science Reviews, 2009) “The breadth of coverage in this text is impressive.” (Lake and Reservoir Management, 2009) “If I could speak with fluidity and clarity in my lectures as consistently as John Smol writes my students would be very grateful.” (Journal of Paleolimnology, 2009)

A self-contained text reviewing tropical limnology. Discusses a number of communities in detail, including plankton, benthic regions, and the water margins. Introduces the characteristic types and assemblies of animals and plants from tropical communities. The measurement and relative magnitude of such quantifiable aspects as abundance, biomass, primary production, secondary production, and decomposition are all outlined, drawing together the diverse threads of freshwater ecology over one of the earth's climatic belts. Deals with use and abuse of water in the tropics and looks at problems of diversity and diversification in tropical waters.

The geography and geology of lakes and rivers is a fascinating subject. From plankton to larger fishes and wildlife, rivers and lakes are rich with biodiversity. The earliest civilizations were based around rivers, including the Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, and Indus and Huang Ho valleys. Illustrating the physical geography, hydrology, ecology, and human use of these areas, Lakes and Rivers provides an excellent overview of the past, present, and future of these habitats. This volume concludes with a discussion of threats to rivers and lakes, such as overharvesting, effects of damming, pollution, and climate change, as well as ways to manage and protect these habitats.
