The fundamental purpose of this book is to synthesize the divergent literature on aquatic lipids into a coordinated, digestible form." "Students and researchers in ecology, phycology, aquatic toxicology, physiological ecology, and limnology will find this an invaluable guide and reference."--Jacket.
