Abstract:This book is the first to bring together the main aspects and problems of Tropical African limnology (the study of the hydrology and biology of the inlands waters). It covers general topics such as the historical background to scientific exploration, the geological and climatic history of the Great Lakes of Africa, distribution and evolution of aquatic faunas, the adaptations of organisms to life in different types of tropical waters, the circulation of matter and energy and the productivity of tropical lakes. In addition, a series of chapters is devoted to the major lakes and watersystems of Tropical Africa. The book ends with a chapter on the man-made lakes.
