Book Reviews (on second edition)
--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Biology of Freshwater Pollution, is a highly regarded overview of the subject aimed at advanced undergraduates and professionals. This latest edition provides an up-to-date summary of the whole field covering recent research, case studies and examples.
The book begins by describing contrasting examples of pollution events. Individual chapters then deal with the major types of pollution introducing their sources, exploring their impacts on biological systems and water resources using contemporary examples, and discussing methods for mitigating impacts. Techniques used to investigate pollution are introduced throughout and the penultimate chapter deals extensively with the biological assessment of water quality. The final chapter looks at water resource management in the twenty-first century and the role of the biologist in that process.
Features of the new edition
* New coverage of current issues- biomarkers, endocrine disruptors, global warming
* New chapter on biological pollution (invasive species)
* New combined chapters bringing together material on toxic pollutions and energy and pollution
* Management chapter extensively revised including the new organisation of the water industry and new regulatory frameworks
* New case studies and examples
* References have been extensively updated
This book is aimed at advanced students in Aquatic and Applied Biology, Limnology and Environmental Science and scientists working in the water industry.
Christopher Mason is a Professor of Biology at the University of Essex, UK. He has extensive research experience in the fields of pollution and conservation of freshwater and coastal environments, including eutrophication, heavy metals and organochlorines.

Format: Paperback
This book should be considered a must-have purchase for all freshwater scientists, whether in industry or in academia. It is extremely well written and provides a wealth of information about such varying topics as eutrophication, acidification and biomonitoring. The use of case studies adds depth and reality to the book as a whole. Definitely worth buying if you are taking any course on freshwater science.

I have found this book to be an endless help with my degree and also a fascinating read (which is unusual for a text book). It covers everthing in wonderful detail and with great accuracy.
Chris Mason is a great writer and I hope to be able to read some of his other works.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An unexpected gem. As a professional environmental consultant I have found a wealth of information evidencing for the impacts of pollution on animals. Referencing is excellent and almost every observation is supported by peer reviewed publications and scientific studies. Some of this is a bit old, but there are no new comparable books that will tell you for example, the effect of benzene on otters. Many of these studies were historically significant 10 years ago, and are still highly relevant today. The major difference is that we are better at chemical analysis and rely more on this now. But for me, I prefer biological monitoring which is less prone to sampling error (between samples). buy it.
