A comprehensive introduction to eutrophication, the process by which the water quality of lakes deteriorates as a result of their increased levels of nutrients. (These nutrients, however, also increase the fertility of lakes.) The process normally takes centuries, but is accelerating as a result of man's activities in catchment areas. The book is divided into three parts. The first part looks at basic causes and control strategies; the second considers conflict between the natural environment and man's influence; the third presents the scientific basis of our understanding of both eutrophication and its control.

Greek Waters Pilot is the definitive cruising guide to the coasts and islands of Greece. It covers the entire area from the Ionian Islands to the Aegean, Rhodes and Crete and includes details of over 450 harbours in a single volume. Greek Waters Pilot has been painstakingly compiled from the author's own survey work and the latest first-hand information. Although much of the new material affects the Ionian and southeastern Aegean, this new edition contains detailed updating of every part of the guide. The redrawn and amended plans and new photographs, many of which have been taken from the air, complement the revisions in the text, refreshing this work which is now in its eleventh edition. The organisation of so much detail within the confines of a single volume is an impressive achievement and has been the basis of Greek Waters Pilot's status as the indispensable guide for anyone sailing around Greece. 'The fascinating background information with historical and mythological anecdotes gives this book a richness too often missing from bald pilot guides. It would be inconceivable to visit this area without the detailed knowledge provided by Rod Heikell's enviable experience of Greek cruising.?' Royal Cruising Club 'Anyone who has cruised around Greece will be grateful to Rod Heikell for compiling what has become 'the bible' for pilotage in these waters. If you are planning on cruising in this delightful region, Heikell is invaluable...' Cruising Association '... his excellent pilots are the yardstick by which all others are measured and it's with justification that they are often referred to as 'the bible'.'
