Since the limnological research on the man-made Brokopondo Reservoir in the 'sixties, numerous data have been collected on the ecology of Surinam rivers and swamps. This book is a compilation of these data: it is the first comprehensive survey of the aquatic ecology of one of the peripheral areas of Amazonia. The geomorphology of the country, situated on the Guyana Shield, is the main factor. Suriname has 11 Nature Reserves, 1 Nature park and 4 Multi Use Management Areas (MUMA"S). A protected area is an area set aside for the preservation and protection of highly important natural and cultural features, for the regulation of the scientific, educational and recreational use. On March 5, ,the leaders of the indigenous peoples in Suriname presented a declaration for the protection. About this book. With some currently known fresh- and brackish-water fish species, Suriname has a rich inland fish fauna that is related to the most diverse freshwater fish fauna on planet Earth, i.e. that of the Amazon Range: £ - £ “Overall, the book is a valuable stand-alone publication on the subject of climate change and freshwater ecosystems.” (Austral Ecology, 1 November ) “This book makes an excellent contribution to summarizing the current state of knowledge and deserves a place on the bookshelves of natural scientists and decision makers alike.”.
