Eutrophication and algal blooms are worldwide environmental issues in lakes. The eutrophication process and formation mechanisms of algal blooms are particularly complicated in shallow lakes due to the strong lake-land, air-water and water-sediment interactions. This volume features papers presented at theInternational Symposium on the Eutrophication Process and Control in Large Shallow Lakes - with Special Reference to Lake Taihu, a Shallow Subtropical Chinese Lake,held in Nanjing, China, 22-26 April, 2005. The topics include: physical processes and their effects on shallow lake ecosystems; biogeochemistry of sediments and nutrient cycling in shallow lakes; algal blooms and ecosystem response in shallow lakes; eutrophication control and restoration in shallow lakes; and resource exploitation, environmental protection and sustainable management in shallow lakes.

This volume will make a significant contribution to the understanding and management of eutrophication in shallow lakes.
