    Book Description


    Concern about future supplies of fresh water to society, to meet the full range of human needs, now comes very high on the priority list of global societal issues. An overarching issue, which this book addresses, is whether global climate change is a dominant driver of change in the structure and function of all natural water-based ecosystems, or whether direct human population growth and accelerated consumption are playing an equal or greater role. This book divides the whole aquatic realm into 21 ecosystems, from those on land (both saline and fresh water) to those of the open and deep oceans. It draws on the understanding of leading ecologists to summarize the state and likely condition by the year 2025 of each of the ecosystems. Written for academic researchers and environmental professionals, the aim is to put the climate change debate into a broader context as a basis for conservation science and planning.


    Editorial Reviews

    Review

    "The chapters are appropriate, the information is current, and clarity and uniformity are maintained through all chapters. Placement of the references from all the chapters in one section near the end of the book ease locating full citations for further reading and should be emulated by similar works. Readers unfamiliar with these ecosystems will find this volume a good introduction. Sophisticated readers will find it a handy reference to the literature. ... Highly recommended." - S.R. Fegley, CHOICE
