Freshwater ecosystems include lakes, ponds, streams, rivers, and certain types of wetlands. This literature and resources guide is not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography on freshwater ecology; the guide is designed--as the name of the series implies--to put the reader or student "on target." Other literature guides related to freshwater ecology are Acid Rain (LC Science Tracer Bullet 86-11), Algae (LC Science Tracer Bullet 88-1), and Environmental Science Projects (LC Science Tracer Bullet 90-2). Sections of this bibliography include: (1) introductions to the topic; (2) subject headings used by the Library of Congress, under which books on freshwater ecology can be located in most card, book, and online catalogs; (3) basic texts; (4) specialized titles; (5) titles suitable for nature study or environmental education; (6) handbooks and dictionaries; (7) bibliographies; (8) state-of-the-art reviews and conference proceedings; (9) government publications; (10) abstracting and indexing services that index relevant journal articles and other literature on freshwater ecology; (11) journals that often contain relevant articles; (12) representative journal articles; (13) selected technical reports; (14) selected materials available in the Science Reading Room pamphlet boxes; and (15) additional sources of information.
