Description - An Introduction to Marine Ecology by Richard. S. K. Barnes

This established textbook continues to provide a comprehensive and stimulating introduction to marine ecological concepts and processes. Based on a wealth of international teaching expertise, An Introduction to Marine Ecology is written as a basis for an entire undergraduate course in marine biology or ecology. It covers the trophic, environmental and competitive interactions of marine organisms and the effects of these on the productivity, dynamics and structure of marine systems. The strength of the book likes in its discussion of core topics which, despite an increasing emphasis on more applied aspects, remains at the heart of the majority of courses in the subject. The authors maintain the tradition of clarity and conciseness set by previous editions, and the text is extensively illustrated with colour plates, photographs and diagrams. Examples are drawn from all over the world. In this edition, the scientific content of the text has been fully revised and updated. An emphasis has been placed on human impacts and completely new chapters have been added on fisheries, marine ecosystems, and human interference and conservation.
