In the book "Soda lakes of East Africa" 30 well known experts summarize their research findings about 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 three main parts of the book focus on

  • “Organisms and ecology” presents information about the many lake inhabitants, their interactions and adaptations to the extreme living conditions.
