About the book

Freshwater resources have been adversely affected by the anthropogenic activities during the last few decades. Depletion and deterioration of freshwater ecosystems are not only due to the global process of greenhouse gases but also because of deforestation and land degradation. Freshwater bodies act as a potential food production system and means of transportation which provide water, nutrients, health benefits and recreational value to human beings.
Initially, macroecology included the study of species food and space from a particular area, but now it encompasses the relationships between organisms and environment characterized by their distribution, diversity and patterns of abundance. The spatial macroecological investigations are important and being carried out on the dynamics of the functional ecosystem and climate change, biodiversity and fisheries.
This book covers the findings and reviews of various aspects of freshwater ecosystems which highlight not only the underlying challenge of macroecological processes but also the emerging traits of functional diversity, including fisheries.
The book will be useful for those who are working in the field of freshwater ecosystems. Each chapter of the book focuses on the basic and current status of the knowledge based on the concerned topics in the field of freshwater ecology. Hopefully, the book will be beneficial not only for academicians but also for industrialists and professionals.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
