Description - Ecology of Aquatic Management by Chris Frid
Sustainable management of ecosystems is a key issue in ecology and environmental science and aquatic ecosystems are high on international priorities for conservation. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the exploitation and management of marine and freshwater systems from an ecological perspective. The book explores current exploitation practices in 2002, discusses the underlying scientific principles, and provides case studies and references to enable students to study individual topics in more depth. Part One covers water itself as a resource, and the ecological impacts of human exploitation of water. Part Two considers aquatic organisms as exploitable components of the environment and discusses sustainability issues in harvesting and farming (or culturing) them. Part Three looks at exploitation of the aquatic environment for waste disposal, mineral extraction and recreation. Finally, Part Four provides a synthesis of the various impacts and considers effective management strategies.
