The First Edition of Ecology and Classification of North American Freshwater Invertebrates has been immensely popular with students and researchers interested in freshwater biology and ecology, limnology, environmental science, invertebrate zoology, and related fields. The First Edition has been widely used as a textbook and this Second Edition should continue to serve students in advanced classes. The Second Edition features expanded and updated chapters, especially with respect to the cited references and the classification of North American freshwater invertebrates. New chapters or substantially revised chapters include those on freshwater ecosystems, snails, aquatic spiders, aquatic insects, and crustaceans.

Reviews

"This is a book by biologists for biologists, constructed with care, professionalism and detail. I found no chapter to be disappointing, and those covering the groups I know best were fair and helpful syntheses. This book will be immediately helpful to me and my graduate and senior undergraduate students; it will be a valuable reference in several of our biology courses such as limnology, ecology and invertebrate biology."
