Book Description

10 Nov 2011 0521514002 978-0521514002
Integrating research into freshwater biodiversity and the role of keystone species, this fascinating book presents freshwater crayfish as representatives of human-exacerbated threats to biodiversity and conservation. It uses examples from these and other large decapod invertebrates to explore how communities function and are controlled, alongside the implications of human demands and conflicts over limited resources, notably the severe impacts on biodiversity. The discussion is structured around three key topics – the present situation of crayfish in world freshwater ecosystems, the applications of science to conservation management and knowledge transfer for successful crayfish management. It outlines the historic exploitation of crayfish, addressing the problems caused by invasive alien forms and explaining the importance of correct identification when dealing with conservation issues. Offering a global perspective on freshwater systems, the book ultimately highlights how the conservation of such large and long-lived species will help protect ecosystem quality in the future.

Product Description

Review

"Indeed, this is one of the best crayfish-oriented books this reviewer has ever read. While the book will appeal most to crayfish enthusiasts, it actually has a much broader value; anyone interested in managing aquatic species in general should find the book's lessons quite valuable. This reviewer had originally planned to give this book away after reviewing it, but now it occupies a valued space on his bookshelf. Highly recommended."
J.H. Thorp III, University of Kansas for Choice Magazine
