Description / Table of Contents:
Scientific interest in the Antarctic continues to accelerate and limnological research in the area is expanding accordingly. Continued commercial exploitation of mineral resources in the Arctic and the potential for similar developments in the Antarctic have heightened environmental concern and the need for ecological information. This volume brings together limnologists from both polar zones to draw attention to the distinctive features that high latitude aquatic ecosystems have in common, and to the marked contrasts between and within each zone. Twenty-two papers encompass a broad range of new research including the unique geochemistries, insect and zooplankton dynamics, algal community structure and growth characteristics, and microbial ecology of high latitude lakes and rivers. The volume will be a reference source for limnologists and other environmental scientists with an interest in high latitude waters, and for those involved in environmental impact assessments in Antarctica or the Arctic.
