Summary and Info
Limnology is increasingly concerned with water supply and the relation of man to aquatic environments. Without the continued availability of pure water, all progress in technology and other fields of human life will be to no avail. The global problems concerning clear water are already extremely pressing. More limnology knowledge is needed to solve these problems. The responsibility of man to save water and to take more intensive care of the environment is raised in many of the papers, in this book. This emphasizes the necessary and unquestionable relevance of limnology to human society. Too often the abuse of water usage reflects the neglect of scientific results. Limnologists have a responsibility to ensure that administrators understand what is going on. The coverage of the book is wide, including papers on microbiology to engineering sciences. The biology of waters is handled at both species and ecosystem levels. The geographical distribution of topics ranges from the tropics to northern temperate areas. In fact, limnology is increasingly becoming a science which is, rightly, relevant to everyday life, not just an academic subject.
