about this item

Thorp and Covich's Freshwater Invertebrates: Keys to Nearctic Fauna, Fourth Editionpresents a comprehensive revision and expansion of this trusted professional reference manual and educational textbook—from a single North American tome into a developing multivolume series covering inland water invertebrates of the world.

The series, now entitledThorp and Covich’s Freshwater Invertebrates (edited by J.H. Thorp), began withVolume I: Ecology and General Biology (edited by J.H. Thorp and D.C. Rogers). It now continues inVolume II with taxonomic coverage of inland water invertebrates of the Nearctic zoogeographic region.
