This volume is derived from a symposium on High Latitude Limnology held during the 23rd Congress of the Societas Internationalis Limnologiae in Hamilton, New Zealand. The symposium stemmed from our belief that an exchange of views between limnologists working in the north and south polar zones would be timely and productive. Over the last decade there has been a major increase in the.

High Latitude Limnology / Edition 1. by W.F. Vincent, J.C. Ellis-EvansPrice: $ This is the first book to describe the ecology of high latitude lakes, rivers and glacial environments in both the North and South polar regions. From the lake-rich floodplains of the Arctic to the deep, enigmatic waters of Lake Vostok, Antarctica, these regions contain some of the most extraordinary aquatic ecosystems on Earth. Lakes, ponds, rivers and streams are prominent features of the Arctic landscape and are also common in many parts of Antarctica. These waters encompass a remarkable variety of conditions for aquatic life, and are proving to be attractive model systems for exploring general ecological themes. Some of these ecosystems have direct global implications, and are also sentinels of global climate change. Introduction to the limnology of high-latitude lake and river ecosystems Warwick F. Vincent, John E. Hobbie, and Johanna Laybourn-Parry Outline Polar lakes and rivers encompass a diverse range of aquatic habitats, and many of these environments have broad global signiF cance. In this introduction to polar aquatic ecosystems, we F rst present a.
