The selection of an appropriate device or method to collect samples and how to preserve those samples is well described. Overall this volume is a useful and timely addition to the field. It reviews much of the knowledge accumulated over the last 50 years in terms of practical methods for the study of plankton. It provides a primer for taxonomy that covers many of the common taxa."

"This new book, edited by Iain Suthers and David Rissik, provides an excellent introduction to many aspects of plankton ecology, both basic and applied. Overall, this is an excellent book and I recommend purchasing one for your book shelf."
Dr. Kerrie Swadling, AMSA Bulletin, No 181, Spring 2009
"There are, in fact, generally very few published books on the ecology of plankton and none to my knowledge that deal with the use of plankton for water monitoring. Thus, this concise introductory book edited by Ian M. Suthers and David Rissik represents a useful addition to the existing literature by integrating general aspects of the ecology and taxonomy of key species of marine and freshwater plankton, with technical approaches and methodological guidelines on water quality monitoring."
