Taylor & Francis, 1997 - Science - 308 pages
This volume seeks to provide an overview of current knowledge on biodiversity in one particular set of ecotonal systems, those between land and lakes, rivers and other inland waters. The intention is to highlight the role of biodiversity in the functioning of these transition systems, to distill recommendations and insights useful for management, planning and educational purposes, and to identify the main scientific issues to be addressed in future research.
