The Biology of Temporary Waters

D. Dudley Williams

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines aspects of temporary waters that are largely associated with human activities. Some of these associations are ancient, for example use of temporary floodplain pools for trapping migrating fishes; the rice-paddy culture method for fishes; and the rotation of grain and carp harvests in Europe. In each case, the characteristics of community structure and dynamics are outlined and compared with other temporary waters.

Keywords:   human activities, floodplains, fishing, rice paddies, carp, community structure and dynamics
