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.
- Most up-to-date and informative text of its kind
- Written by experts in the ecology of various invertebrate groups, coverage emphasizes ecological information within a current taxonomic framework
- Each chapter contains both morphological and taxonomic information, including keys to North American taxa (usually to the generic level) as well as bibliographic information and a list of further readings
- The text is geared toward researchers and advanced undergraduate and graduate students
Advanced undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, faculty and staff at universiities and consulting companies interested in freshwater biology and ecology, limnology, envionmental science, invertebrate zoology and related fields.

@from:From the Reviews of the First Edition: @qu:"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." @source:--QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY
