Content Description top ↑

This volume represents papers from the Limnological Jubilee Symposium of Uppsala University in 1977. Limnology is the part of ecology that deals with the structure and functions of inland waters, including their responses to human activities. Theoretical aspects of lake metabolism and practical considerations of lake management are intimately connected.
