Synopsis : This is a comprehensive and up-to date account of the biology and ecology of invertebrate animals living in New Zealand streams and rivers. Invertebrates play key roles in the food-webs of running water ecosystems and are the principal foods of fish and many water associated birds. They are also used widely for biological monitoring and measuring the toxicity of effluents. Although an extensive technical and scientific literature deals with many aspects of stream ecology in New Zealand, this is the first work that draws much of it together in a detailed and authoritative manner. The contributors are research scientists, academics and water managers who work with stream invertebrates.
The book comprises 15 chapters totaling over 400 pages. The first three provide an introduction to the New Zealand stream fauna, its biogeography,, biodiversity, and special features, while five deal with fundamental aspects of ecology: life-histories, feeding, substrate relationships and habitat use. The last seven chapters examine applied topics including the effects of agriculture, mining, forestry, urban development, flow management and toxic substances on stream communities, conservation issues and the role of stream invertebrates in monitoring and management.
New Zealand Stream Invertebrates: Ecology and Implications for Management includes extensive references to the original literature, comprehensive indexes and an eight page spread of color photographs.
A propos de l'auteur: Kevin Collier is a senior aquatic scientist at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Mike Winterbourn is Emeritus Professor of Zoology, University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
