Fifty years of hydrobiological research in India

The paper calls for the strengthening of field and laboratory facilities, and establishment of regional and national institutes of aquatic ecology which will be necessary for the management of both the water quality and aquatic biological resources for sustainable development.

A note on the role of Kachuga tectum gray (Reptilia: Chelonia) in controlling aquatic weeds

The herbivorous turtle Kachuga tectum consumes on wide variety of aquatic weeds and has potential as a biological agent against obnoxious weed growths.

Food webs for 15 freshwater ecosystems in North America are reconstructed, based upon fish feeding habits in these ecosystems and established trophic categorizations for aquatic invertebrates, and the data indicate that omnivory is often important in freshwater ecosystems, such that fish may not always control the abundance of their prey.

Structure and dynamics of plant communities

The aquatic plants, as discussed in the previous chapter, tend to reproduce vigorously by vegetative means and rapidly develop pure single species populations over large areas. However, it is not

Strategies for controlling noxious growth of aquatic vegetation

Both native and introduced aquatic plants often occur in such large amounts in different water bodies that they interfere with the desired use of the water resources of which the use for agriculture

Traditional uses and problem of noxious growth

Aquatic plants undoubtedly play important ecological roles as the dominant primary producer component of shallow water ecosystems (Gaudet 1974). They directly provide shelter and food to a variety of
