Product Description: Originally published in 1983, An Ecosystem Approach to Aquatic Ecology is a unique, comprehensive analysis of a lake ecosystem. It summarizes and integrates results from the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study, one of the most extensive long-term studies of a watershed ever undertaken. The Hubbard Brook Ecosystem study produced two widely acclaimed earlier volumes - Biogeochemistry of a forested ecosystem and Pattern and Process in a Forested Ecosystem - about natural and disturbed terrestrial ecosystems in the Hubbard Brook Valley in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This new volume integrates the ecology and biogeochemistry of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to describe the interactions of Mirror Lake with its watershed and airshed.This comprehensive work presents an enormous data base and reference listing. As a model study in limnology, it is an essential text-reference for both the student and the practicing researcher.Dr. Gene E. Likens is President and Director of the Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York. He also holds professorships at Cornell University, Yale University, Rutgers University, SUNY-Albany, and the University of Connecticut, Storrs. In April 2000 he was appointed to the G. Evelyn Hutchinson Chair in Ecology at IES.In January 2006, the U.S. Forest Service honored Dr. Likens with a Science Leadership Award for his pioneering research on watershed ecology. Dr. Likens received the National Medal of Science at a White House ceremony on 12 June 2002 for his work on the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study, which revealed valuable insight into how watersheds respond to human-induced environmental change, from air pollution to logging.Dr. Likens obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Following a postdoctoral appointment in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, he was on the faculty of Dartmouth College (Instructor/Associate Professor, 1963-69) and faculty of Cornell University (Associate Professor/Professor, 1969-1983). In January 1983 he was named Cornell University's Charles A. Alexander Professor of Biological Sciences. While at Cornell University, he served as Chairman of the Section of Ecology and Systematics."This book is recommended to ecologists and graduate students engaged in limnological research. It is rich in numbers and is a model of careful data analysis and interpretation. Likens successfully blended many facets of ecology and biogeochemistry and attained his abiding objective, to focus on the ecosystem as a whole." Science, 1986."the textbook example for many ecological, limnological, geological, meteorological, biological, and environmental course; and a touchstone for serious researchers of lakes." American Scientist, 1988.
