Ecology of Lakes and Reservoirs

V B Sakhare (Editor)
Synopsis Lakes and reservoirs hold a great promise as a source of freshwater demand of which will grow with passage of time. Unfortunately, these ecosystems are being neglected and destroyed in rural as well as in urban areas. The main problem in their management involves maintenance of water quality and morphometry responsible for water holding capacity. Innumerable lakes and reservoirs scattered all over the country need an urgent management plans for their protection, rehabilitation and conservation. By suitable remedial measures these water bodies can provide an ideal recreational site apart from other benefits like fish production, charging of groundwater table, conditioning of the climate etc. To achieve this, there is a need of a clear-cut lake and reservoir protection strategy as an integral component of natural water policy. In the present book on ‘Ecology of Lakes and Reservoirs’ an attempt has been made to ring out the present status of lakes and reservoirs. It includes the physical, chemical and biological aspects. The proposed book include 17 research articles of eminent scientists representing different lakes and reservoirs in India. Today environmental education is made compulsory at school and college levels. Even in recent years many graduate and postgraduate courses have ‘ecology’ as an important subjects. As a result, there is a need for comprehensive book ‘Ecology of Lakes and Reservoirs’. This gap has been filled by the book. The proposed book will be useful for ecologists, fishery biologists, students, scientists and policy makers as a reference material. It will also reviews the progress made in the field in the past few decades.
