Another volume in the popular New Naturalist series, this book gives a comprehensive account of the natural history of Britain and Ireland's inland waters, many of which are popular holiday destinations. Freshwaters form the fascinating threads that stitch together the landscapes of our planet with a myriad of exchanges involving an array of organisms, from algae and insects to hippopotami and otters. Healthy lakes and their shores influence our quality of life and they strengthen the economy. They are important ecosystems that can sustain a healthy balance of aquatic life, provide us with much enjoyment, and help support our socio-economic needs. At the same time they suffer the consequences of human abuses of the land – increasing urbanisation, intensive farming, drainage and an increasing invasion of non-native species, to name but a few. Moss explores the richness of their fundamental ecology, emphasizing the need to view these freshwater systems as a whole, and not to manage or assess them in isolation, as well as the importance of ongoing conservation efforts. Brian Moss is is one of the most influential freshwater ecologists in Europe and one of the world’s leading scientists on shallow-lake ecology. He is Professor of Botany at the University of Liverpool and has researched freshwater biology across Europe, Africa and the USA. He spent 17 years at the University of East Anglia, where he modernised understanding of the ecological problems of the Norfolk Broads. He is currently focused on the restoration of polluted lakes.
