Indian Estuaries

S.Z. Qasim (Author)
Synopsis Indian Estuaries is the first book on this topic giving an exhaustive account of 25 Estuaries in India. It serves a strong reference material and indicates the ways different Estuaries behave in terms of their richness in Flora and Fauna, and the manner in which the tidal cycles and seasonal regime of the monsoon drastically change their hydrobiological features during the year. Starting with the definition of the Estuaries, the book covers the descriptions of eight Estuaries on the East Coast of India belonging to different littoral states -Hooghly in West Bengal; Rushikulya in Orissa; Godavari in Andhra Pradesh and Ennore, Cooum, Adyar, Vellar and Cauvery in Tamil Nadu - all ending in the Bay of Bengal. Similarly, it covers 17 Estuaries on the West Coast - Ashtamudi and Cochin Backwaters with Vembanad in Kerala; Kali in Karnataka; Mandovi-Zuari in Goa; Bombay Harbour/Thane Creek, Mahim and Amba in Maharashtra and Mahi, Narmada, Tapi, Mindhola, Purna, Ambika, Auranga, Par, Kolak and Damanganga in Gujarat - all ending in the Arabian Sea. It is an invaluable volume to be used as a text and reference material by students and research workers, teaching aid and guide for teachers and professionals. The various issues and diverse themes related to Estuarine research in India have been presented in a most innovative and comprehensive fashion. The book has been written with utmost clarity and is easy to understand. It has been profusely illustrated with tables and figures.
