Significant serious efforts have already been applied by the environmental research community towards the proper evaluation and further development of the meaningful estuarine indicators, and the main reason for that is the today's inability to properly and objectively determine today's trends and status among the associated estuarine eco-systems. So, in order to reach this important goal, all involved scientists and researchers will face the real necessity to combine their efforts in a broader range of relevant disciplines. The present volume provides all interested readers with the key technical concepts and basic principles of the indicators, together with the general info on theory use and practical application in all associated management/research practices. Based on the numerous reviews provided by the readers, the book may serve as an excellent reference source when used by students, scientists and researchers working in any field with estuarines and associated eco-systems involved. The content of this book is accessible even to the novices not only to the professionals. The volume may be definitely treated as a comprehensive and really multi-disciplinary resource covering all most important topics, for example theoretical basics, methods and protocols, future directions and potentials, examples of effective/ineffective indicators etc.
