Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Collingwood, Vic. : London : CSIRO ; Eurospan [distributor], 2009Description: xvi, 256 p. : ill. ; 23 cm.ISBN: 9780643090583 (pbk.); 0643090584 (pbk.).Subject(s): WATER | FRESH WATER | SEAWATER | PLANKTON | ECOLOGY | WATER QUALITY | ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING | METHODSHoldings: CHRISTCHURCH: 574.583 PLA | HAMILTON: QH 90.8. P5 PLA 2009 Summary: Plankton serves as a tool for measuring water quality. While some guidelines have been developed for the collection and monitoring of freshwater algae (Algal Watch), there are differences between the methods and protocols used to sample estuaries and freshwater systems as well as those used to sample zooplankton. This practical book gives an introduction to the biology and ecology of plankton and its use as a tool for monitoring water quality. It explores the ecology of plankton, its associated environmental and water quality issues, and its importance as an environmental indicator. A chapter on best practice in sampling and monitoring details how to design, implement and conduct meaningful phytoplankton and zooplankton monitoring programs in marine and freshwater habitats. It gives overviews of the major freshwater and coastal phytoplankton and zooplankton groups and outlines their associated environmental issues and the management implications.
