This 8th volume of the book 'Advances in Aquatic Ecology' is an excellent compilation of 35 research as well as review communications, lucidly written by stalwarts from various research institutions and universities of India and abroad.
It is hoped that this volume shall generate further database and interest for the benefit of academicians, researchers, policymakers, ecoplanners, administrators and scientists working in the field of aquatic ecology.
