Product DescriptionBy Ralph O. Brinkhurst
First published in 1974, this book has become a classic in the field.
The book sought to identify hypotheses that had been erected in the past, and to investigate the extent to which they had been adequately tested. The various environmental and methodologic factors that needed to be addressed in attempting future tests of hypotheses were discussed. There was no attempt to present an encyclopedic account of the literature. A very large volume of publications was traced and obtained. This effort was considered to be closed when new documents added little to the accumulated pattern of ideas, but even so, over 400 titles appear in the references. The volume should therefore continue to be of value as a source of ideas for benthic biologists, and teachers and students of limnology.
