Temporary waters are also very important from a human health . It examines the ecology of temporary waters in both natural and human.

Temporary waters are also very important from a human health perspective since they function as breeding places for the vectors of many disease organisms, including those that spread malaria, schistosomiasis, yellow fever, and dengue. Most of these exact a high toll in terms of global human suffering and reduced regional economies. This book collates and synthesises the highly scattered and diverse global literature on pure and applied aspects of these habitats and their biota. It examines the ecology of temporary waters in both natural and human environments, and seeks to identify common evolutionary themes.

Williams D. Dudley (EN). Temporary waters are found throughout the world, and include intermittent streams and ponds, episodic rain puddles, seasonal limestone lakes, the water-retaining structures of plants, such as bromeliads and pitcher plants, and a variety of man-made container habitats. They are probably populated by various plant, animal, and microscopic communities ranging from the very simple to the highly complex. Temporary waters therefore represent fascinating and significantarenas in which to study the properties of species, as the latter deal with the rigours of living in highly.

The primary role of this book is to introduce the reader to, and hopefully stimulate interest in, the ecology of temporary aquatic habi- tats. The book assumes that the reader will have, already, some gen- eral knowledge of ecology but this is not essential. Temporary waters exhibit amplitudes in both physical and chemical parameters which are much greater than those found in most waterbodies. The organisms that live in these types of habitats have, therefore, to be very well adapted to these conditions if they are to survive.

Volume 1: Biology, Ecology and Systematics. unregulated water bath and on-off control of regulated water bath.

Written by a pioneering authority in the field. This well illustrated and fascinating book documents the life found in every possible sort of temporary water. Collates and synthesises a growing body of literature. the authors enthusiasm for these is infectious and he will surely re-kindle interest in these habitats, for they illustrate many ecological principles. - M. Young, Bulletin of the British Ecological Society.

The primary role of this book is to introduce the reader to, and hopefully stimulate interest in, the ecology of temporary aquatic habi­ tats. The book assumes that the reader will have, already, some gen­ eral knowledge of ecology but this is not essential. Temporary waters exhibit amplitudes in both physical and chemical parameters which are much greater than those found in most waterbodies. The organisms that live in these types of habitats have, therefore, to be very well adapted to these conditions if they are to survive. Survival depends largely on exceptional physiological tolerance or effective immigration and emigration abilities. Examples of such adaptations are given throughout the book and it is hoped that these will aid the reader in gaining an insight into the structure and function of plant and animal communities of these unusual habi­ tats. The final chapter suggests field and laboratory projects that should be useful to students in school and university studies.
