Nunc dimittis: a life in the river of time
An autobiography of Noel Hynes, a limnologist who studied the biology of rivers and streams which led him to become the "Father of running water ecology." This book recounts his childhood through the depression, his wide travels, and his marriage of 56 years. It should appeal to anyone with an interest in aquatic biology.
