Little in the way of comprehensive academic literature on NZ limnology (the study of bodies of fresh water) was available before this work by Jolly and Brown was published. In his forward to the book M A Chapman, president of the NZ Limnological Society, said it was a milestone "since it was the first time much previously unpublished or scattered and difuse material had been brought together." A handsome and vastly informative volume was the result. Following a general introduction, and maps locating NZ lakes, the content is sub-divided into sections covering Geomorphology, Physical Characteristics, Chemistry and General Biological Features, Plankton Studies, Plant Studies and Animal Studies, each with several sub-sections. Almost 40 years after publication this study is perticularly relevant as the water quality in NZ lakes comes under increasing pressure from unbanisation, agricultural and industrial impacts. First edition of 1975 jointly published by Auckland and Oxford UPs, 388 pages including references, glossary, NZ lakes index, scientific names index and general index. illustrated throughout with B/w photos, maps, drawings (mainly fish), diagrams, graphs, tables etc. Hard covers with light brown wrap-round misty lake photo image VG+ with two small impression marks lower front edge, small dealer stamp lower right corner FFEP, text block otherwise excellent, no inscriptions or markings. Unpacked weight 1kg; may require additional postage for international delivery. N° de ref. de la librería 004476

Reseña del editor:

The lakes of New Zealand are notable for both their number and for their variety. In these islands there are as many types of lakes as are found in most continents. This book collects information scattered in scientific journals. The geological forms and classification of the lakes are described with special chapters on glacial lakes and volcanic lakes. The distribution of light and heat, chemical and biological conditions, plankton, plants, small fauna, fish, and birds are among the topics covered. There are studies of individual lakes and of types of lakes, including hydro-electric impoundments, and of such problems as the enrichment of lake waters by farm runoff and the growth of lakeweed. There is a chapter on sport fisheries.
