Format: Paperback
Covers a range of topics which provide ideas and good basic guidelines for project student work. Often gives a number of differnt methods for laboratory analysis - very useful. My only complaint is that the keys are not particularly useful for the UK, otherwise an excellent introduction to freshwater ecological research methods.
