Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"Designed to accommodate undergraduates with diverse backgrounds, this text provides an excellent introduction to limnological methods and problems. … In other words, this book was written to be used in the classroom, the laboratory, and the field! … Many line drawings, graphs, and B/W photographs provided. Amply referenced, this book should be considered by professional limnologists, especially those looking for an excellent undergraduate textbook." (Northeastern Naturalist, Vol. 12 (2), 2005)

"This is the third edition of this well known text book on limnological methods. … This book is written for students but also for the teachers and is meanwhile a standard volume … and a starting point for independent scientific work. Without doubt all students and teachers should have access to this book. … I would recommend that if you already do not have this book, it is worth more than ever to buy it." (Norbert Walz, International Review of Hydrobiology, Vol. 86 (1), 2001)
