There is a grandeur in this view of life...while this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a begining endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved

PLANKTON

A Guide to Their Ecology and Monitoring For Water Quality This year I want to initiate a study on plankton; both, freshwater and marine. Being at a lost on how to commence, I have been perusing the literature for ideas, and texts for direction on monitoring and collecting methods. The book below, the first of many texts I have purchased for guidance, edited by two Aussies -plankton is plankton, regardless of geography- is a comprehensive A to Z text. “This practical book provides a comprehensive introduction to the biology and ecology of plankton and describes its use as a tool for monitoring water quality. All the major freshwater and coastal phytoplankton and zooplankton groups are covered and their associated environmental issues are discussed. A chapter on best practice in sampling and monitoring explains how to design, implement and conduct meaningful phytoplankton and zooplankton monitoring programs in marine and freshwater habitats, as well as how to analyze and interpret the results for effective, decisive management.”
