It also examines the effects of human interventions, mainly dam building, but also pollution and eutrophication. It ends with several contributions on the natural resource value of water, and the constraints this imposes on the policies of the riparian states. Jellyfish blooms : ecological and societal importance : proceedings of the International Conference on Jellyfish Blooms, held in Gulf Shores, Alabama, January by J. These beautiful creatures have come to public attention as featured exhibits in aquaria and in news headlines as invaders and as providers of genes used in biomedical research.
Nevertheless, jellyfish are generally considered to be nuisances because they interfere with human activities by stinging swimmers, clogging power plant intakes and nets of fishermen and fish farms, and competing with fish and eating fish eggs and larvae. There is concern that environmental changes such as global warming, eutrophication, and over-fishing may result in increased jellyfish populations. The literature reviews and research papers in this volume explore the interactions between jellyfish and humans.
Papers cover the medical aspects of jellyfish stings, jellyfish as human food and jellyfish fisheries, interactions of jellyfish and fish, effects of environmental changes on jellyfish, effects of introduced ctenophores on the Black Sea ecosystem, factors causing increases or concentrations of jellyfish, and others aspects of jellyfish ecology. This is an important reference for students and professional marine biologists, oceanographers, fishery scientists, and aquarists. Tropical zooplankton by H. J Dumont Book 14 editions published in in English and Undetermined and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Our knowledge of the limnology of the waters situated, roughly, between the tropics of cancer and of capricorn, has depended for a long time on the expedition-approach, and therefore developed in a rather irregular, haphazard way, with the personal incentive of a small number of individuals as the main driving force.
Things slowly started to change in the s, and at an accelerating rate in the s and s. For one thing, they showed the need for the creation of in situ limnological research institutes. When, in the s, limnological research facilities or their nuclei began to appear in the tropical zones of all continents, an interesting phenomenon occurred: while most of the young native limnologists had received their training in advanced centres or courses held in the temperate and developed climatic zones, quite a few of their former supervisors or their associates became interested in warm lakes and rivers as well, using the new or newly expanded local institutes.
We are, today, still in this phase and it is, apparently, expanding even further. Although not all experiments of this kind lead to happy marriages, a few were quite successful, and several papers contained in the present volume are hoped to reflect this. J Dumont Book 7 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide At the end of the first international Symposium on Rotifers diately accepted to do this, and kindly made an entire in Lunz, Austria, September , entousiastic pleas were special volume of its Journal 'Hydrobiologia' available made for a second gathering of possibly the same format for this purpose.
Also, arrangements were made to have and spirit that had made the first one such a great success. King and Jens Petter Nilssen in particular, tentatively in Gent, and two communications by collegues who could suggested that Gent University might host a meeting of not attend in person.
In view of the relatively large number of Be1gian by one or more referees. Manuscripts have been adjusted, rotifer workers, many among which are or were active in wherever needed, for grammar, clarity of meaning, and Gent, this proposal sounded acceptable to the attendance length. Intrazooplankton predation by H. J Dumont Book 11 editions published in in English and Undetermined and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide. Studies on the ecology of tropical zooplankton by H. J Dumont Book 11 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide This volume reports on the findings of experts on tropical zooplankton gathered at a meeting in Kariba, Zimbabwe, in Some basic questions were asked on community composition and biodiversity in the tropics versus the non-tropics.
This volume contains a mix of papers discussing the two alternative controls bottom-up and top-down of zooplankton community structure and these constitute another step towards a coherent theory of tropical ecosystem theory.
