7 Headstrom, Richard Adventures with Freshwater Animals
Dover Publications 1964 0486244539 / 9780486244532 softcover used 217 pages 
Cover: "Noted author and educator Richard Headstrom invites readers to join him on 47 adventures devoted to exploring the habits, habitats and behavior of common freshwater insects and other animals. In simple, informative language, embellished by 185 of his own pen-and-ink drawings, Mr. Headstrom tells you how to find, examine and observe the diverse denizens of stream, pond and puddle - fairy shrimp, newts, hellgrammites, water striders, hydras, springtails, stoneflies, freshwater sponges, and many other often-overlooked creatures.

Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge and years of experience as a naturalist, the author details distinguishing features of each animal, environmental adaptations, defense and survival mechanisms, food-gathering and reproductive functions, and more. You'll learn how to perform simple experiments, set up aquaria and other observing facilities at home, and how to feed and maintain captive specimens. Best of all, no elaborate equipment is needed (a microscope is helpful in a few cases), and specimens are as close as the nearest roadside puddle."
