A derivative of the Encyclopedia of Inland Waters, Lake Ecosystem Ecology examines the workings of the lake and reservoir ecosystems of our planet. Information and perspectives crucial to the understanding and management of current environmental problems are covered, such as eutrophication, acid rain and climate change. Because the articles are drawn from an encyclopedia, the articles are easily accessible to interested members of the public, such as conservationists and environmental decision makers.

- Includes an up-to-date summary of global aquatic ecosystems and issues.
- Covers current environmental problems and management solutions.
- Features full-color figures and tables to support the text and aid in understanding.
