Designed to foster a better understanding of reservoir operations and to promote the effective management of water resources, this book offers an analysis of reservoirs as aquatic ecosystems, sharing basic similarities with natural lakes but also differing in important ways. The book addresses reservoirs as unique ecological systems and presents research indicating that reservoirs fall into two or three interactive ecological systems ranging from riverine to lacustrine or hybrid systems. Included are some controversial concepts about the limnology of reservoirs.
