The series is well known for its excellent reviews and editing. Now edited by Barbara E. Curry (University of Central Florida, USA) with an internationally renowned Editorial Board, the serial publishes in-depth and up-to-date content on many topics that will appeal to postgraduates and researchers in marine biology, fisheries science, ecology, zoology, and biological oceanography. Volumes cover all areas of marine science, both applied and basic, a wide range of topical areas from all areas of marine ecology, oceanography, fisheries management and molecular biology and the full range of geographic areas from polar seas to tropical coral reefs.

  • Review articles on the latest advances in marine biology
  • Many of the authors are leading figures in their fields of study
  • Material is widely used by managers, students, and academic professionals in the marine sciences

This new volume of Advances in Marine Biology contains reviews on a wide range of important subjects such as: long-term oceanographic and ecological research in the western English Channel; marine biofouling on fish farms and its remediation; interactions between behaviour and physical forcing in the control of horizontal transport of decapod crustacean larvae; comparison of marine copepod outfluxes: nature, rate, fate and role in the carbon and nitrogen cycles.

Advances in Marine Biology has been providing in-depth and up-to-date reviews on all aspects of Marine Biology since 1963 -- over 40 years of outstanding coverage! The series is well-known for both its excellence of reviews as well as the strength of its thematic volumes devoted to a particular field in detail, such as 'The Biochemical Ecology of Marine Fishes' and 'Molluscan Radiation'.

Meet the Author

Barbara E. Curry is a Senior Research Scientist in the Physiological Ecology and Bioenergetics Laboratory of University of Central Florida’s Conservation Biology Program. Her research interests include stress and reproductive physiology, energetics, assimilation efficiency and nutritional ecology, with applications to ecosystem-based population management and conservation. She holds a PhD in Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences from Texas A&M University, an MSc in Marine Science from Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, and a BA from University of California, Santa Cruz. Her doctoral research was fully funded by the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and focused on phylogenetic relationships among bottlenose dolphins, genus Tursiops, worldwide. Curry was a National Research Council Post-Doctoral Fellow at the NOAA Fisheries Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla, California. Working as a NOAA scientist for nearly ten years, she conducted a wide range of research projects including studies of marine mammal molecular genetics and of the physiological effects of stress in mammals. She has extensive laboratory experience including in molecular genetics, radioimmunoassay, histology and physiology. Field experience includes marine mammal stranding, recovery and necropsy, and abundance surveys in areas such as the Amazon River (Peru, Ecuador, and Columbia) and the Gulf of Mexico. She has taught a range of courses in the subjects of biology, physiology, anatomy, and vertebrate natural history. Curry has also served as a Mentor for the Harvey Mudd College Upward Bound Math and Science Program, and as a Lecturer for the National Science Foundation Young Scholars Program.

    What??

    I've been interested in marine biology for a while now, but whe I get the free sample, 20 of the 22 pages are credits and copyrights and table of contents and there is only a fractional amount of the first chapter. Now with looking into the marine biology career, a book like this would be great, but $201?? That's probably the best way to keep people FROM buying this book.
