This book is devoted to the alkaline-saline lakes of East Africa, which include the world-famous "flamingo lakes". It covers the full range of issues, from the lakes' origin and history, life in and around these unique water bodies, to utilization, threats and management considerations. The authors, all of whom are leading international experts, summarize research done so far, highlight new and important findings, and provide future outlooks. The book is divided into three main sections: "Genesis, physics and chemistry" tackles lake development and the astounding physico-chemistry of the lakes. "Organisms and ecology" presents information about the many lake inhabitants, their interactions and adaptations to the extreme living conditions. "Utilization, management and perspectives" addresses threats such as lake exploitation and pollution, but also considers potential uses. This book will be particularly relevant to researchers and lecturers in the field of limnology and aquatic ecology, but is also designed to attract all those interested in nature and life on our planet.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book ... is certainly a milestone in characterization and understanding. ... I would therefore recommend this book to any geoscientist. It allows the reader to see how our science interplays with other natural sciences, and the close interconnection between geosphere and biosphere. The book is extremely well edited and the chapters well written: a lasting testimony to the considerable effort the editor and authors have applied. Strongly recommended for anyone who thinks about our natural world." (Rob Bowell, Geoscientist Online, geolsoc.org.uk, November, 2017)
