Lakes and rivers of the tropics are rich with variety and human relevance, yet do not figure prominently in surveys of general freshwater biology and limnology. The details of the scientific exploration of these lakes and rivers are mostly represented only in regional and specialist descriptions and analyses. In this book, the authors take a generalized view, on a worldwide scale, that is dynamic and quantitative in outlook. They integrate events and processes under tropical conditions--not only geographically, but also within a continuum of physics, chemistry, and biology--to provide a foundation that will be of value to all who study and work with tropical inland waters.

Review of the hardback: ' ... a valuable acquisition for those who research in the tropics, and for lecturers in freshwater biology.' Roland Bailey, Journal of Ecology
Review of the hardback: ' ... this book is an extremely valuable reference work, which should be the starting point for any student or ecological professionals embarking on tropical limnological projects.' Keith M. Martin-Smith, Journal of Animal Ecology
Review of the hardback: 'If you want a straightforward introduction to the literature on tropical limnology, then start here.' Mike Dobson, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society
Review of the hardback: '... will be of considerable value to researchers and students in limnology and freshwater biology everywhere and is of special important to those responsible for managing tropical inland waters.' John Melak, Freshwater Biology
Review of the hardback: '... useful reading for undergraduate and graduate students interested in aquatic ecology (tropical or otherwise).' Harvey A. Bootsma, Limnology and Oceanography
