Excellence in Ecology: Book 9

Vegetation Processes in the Pelagic:A Model for Ecosystem Theory

Recipient of the International Ecology Institute (ECI) Prize 1994 in limnetic ecology



Professor Colin Reynolds was elected by the ECI Jury chaired by Professor William D. Williams (University of Adelaide, Australia), for his outstanding contributions to a better understanding of the role of planktonic algae in aquatic ecosystems. Born in London, England, Colin Reynolds completed his formal education at the University of London. He then joined the Windermere Laboratory of the Freshwater Biological Association, and later the Institute of Freshwater ecology, and he is a former President of the Freshwater Biological Association.


EE Book 9 reflects Colin Reynolds' unusually wide-ranging research interests: from pelagic in situ processes in a variety of aquatic habitats to unifying ecological concepts and theories; from descriptions of pelagic vegetations to interpretations of ecosystem dynamics; from assemblage structures and functions to cellular and even molecular levels of organization. Colin Reynolds formulates principles of ecosystem theory, and applies them to the management and conservation of living resources.



Books are sold at cost price. A considerable number of books are donated to libraries in less developed countries.
