Summary
This new edition of Biological Oceanography has been greatly updated and expanded since its initial publication in 2004. It presents current understanding of ocean ecology emphasizing the character of marine organisms from viruses to fish and worms, together with their significance to their habitats and to each other. The book initially emphasizes pelagic organisms and processes, but benthos, hydrothermal vents, climate-change effects, and fisheries all receive attention. The chapter on oceanic biomes has been greatly expanded and a new chapter reviewing approaches to pelagic food webs has been.
Contents
  • Ocean ecology: Some fundamental aspects
  • The phycology of phytoplankton
  • Habitat determinants of primary production in the sea
  • Numerical models: The standard form of theory in pelagic ecology
  • A sea of microbes: archaea, bacteria, protists, and viruses in the magine pelagial
  • The zoology of zooplankton
  • Production ecology of marine zooplankton
  • Population biology of zooplankton
  • Pelagic food webs
  • Biogeography of pelagic habitats
  • Biome and province analysis of the oceans
  • Adaptive complexes of meso- and bathypelagic organisms
  • The fauna of deep-sea sediments
  • Some benthic community ecology
  • Submarine hydrothermal vents
  • Ocean ecology and global climate change
