Description - Ecological Geography of the Sea by Alan R. Longhurst

This work presents a detailed discussion of the biological and ecological geography of the oceans. It synthesizes locally restricted studies of the ocean to generate a global geography for the vast marine world. The book divides the ocean into distinguishable regions that permit detailed comparisons. Based on patterns of algal ecology, the ocean is divided into four primary compartments, which are then subdivided into secondary compartments. These secondary compartments are identified and characterizsed by biochemical features including nutrient dynamics, continental shelf topography and algal blooms. Because ocean-wide regional classification has broad impact on the way oceanographers and ecologists study ocean patterns, the book should offer wide appeal.
