  • Daniel Pauly's Gill-Oxygen Limitation Theory (GOLT)
    NEW EDITION!
    The GOLT proposed by Daniel Pauly in 'Gasping Fish and Panting Squids: Oxygen, Temperature and the Growth of Water-Breathing Animals' (2010, EE Book 22) is not without controversy. In the 2nd edition, Pauly presents new evidence and resolves various misunderstandings connected to the GOLT. This book is essential reading for all students of Aquatic Ecology.

  • NEW! Excellence in Ecology Book 27: "Freshwater Acidification: Natural History, Ecology and Environmental Policy" by Alan Hildrew. Recipient of the 2012 ECI Prize in limnetic ecology. Freshwater acidification–one of the great environmental challenges of our age–is an excellent example of the positive contributions ecological science can make to environmental problems. Although the issue is no longer at the forefront of environmental concern, Hildrew reveals that environmental recovery has not gone as predicted and new problems may arise. Order your copy here.
