Aquatic insects are being used increasingly to test a number of hypotheses in contemporary ecological theory. Additionally, research has revealed the importance of aquatic insects in the spread of diseases, the biological assessment of water quality and the reconstruction of past environments on earth. This book presents new findings in the study of aquatic entomology, together with the background information necessary to understand them and references to more detailed studies. Only a limited prior knowledge of general ecology or entomology is assumed on the part of the reader. The book will therefore appeal to advanced undergraduate students taking courses in aquatic biology or entomology, as well as research workers in ecology and pure and applied entomology.D.
