Promotional Information

This 1993 book documents the importance of trophic cascades in aquatic ecology.


"I found the book to be clearly written, and appropriate for its target audience, researchers in ecology and resource management...The breadth of approaches brought to bear in the study is extremely impressive...I recommend this book as a fine case history of a pluralistic approach to an important ecological issue." Tim Wootton, Ecology "State-of-the-art theory and methods in a variety of ecological and aquatic disciplines are brought together and integrated. Many ecologists will be intrigued by the statistical approaches applied throughout the book...resource managers will find important and useful lessons about ecosystem management in practice." Brett Johnson, Fisheries Review "This book is of interest to workers in ecology, aquatic ecology, resource management, and limnology." Environment International
