Saline Lakes: Publications from the 7th International by John M. Melack, Robert Jellison, David B. Herbst

By John M. Melack, Robert Jellison, David B. Herbst

Inland saline waters are threatened around the globe through diversion and toxins in their inflows, introductions of unique species and fiscal improvement of those ecologically priceless habitats. because 1979 a sequence of overseas symposia on inland saline waters has served to bolster and extend the scope of limnological study on inland saline waters. The 7th convention endured this custom and the papers derived from the convention curious about the ecology of microbial groups, the impression of habitat geochemistry on biogeography of wildlife, actual and geochemical techniques, and the conservation of inland saline waters. Of specific notice are papers on Walker Lake, Nevada (USA), and the Salton Sea and Mono Lake, California (USA). persevered neighborhood, nationwide and foreign efforts are required to notify the general public and decision-makers in regards to the environmental difficulties confronted by means of saline waters. The papers during this quantity will serve this finish and will be of curiosity to aquatic ecologists, limnologists, aquaculturalists, and water source managers.
