Marine systems vary in their sensitivities to perturbation. Perturbation may be insidious - such as increasing eutrophication of coastal areas - or it may be dramatic - such as a response to an oil spill or some other accident. Climate change may occur incrementally or it may be abrupt, and ecosystem resilience is likely to be a complex function of the interactions of the factors and species mediating key biogeochemical processes. Biogeochemistry of Marine Systems considers issues of marine system resilience, focusing on a range of marine systems that exemplify major global province types. Each system is interesting in its own right, on account of its sensitivity to natural or anthropogenic change or its importance as an ecological service provider. Each contributing author concentrates on advances of the last decade. This prime reference source for marine biogeochemists, marine ecologists, and global systems scientists provides a strong foundation for the study of the multiple marine systems undergoing change because of natural biochemical or anthropogenic factors.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[The book] gives an unusual and unique perspective...This is a well written, up-to-date review of the fundamental mechanisms and interactions operating in some representative marine systems...The book could serve as a nice introduction, reference guide, and source of current literature for students and researchers...
...the book certainly provides a comprehensive introduction to the major biogeochemical processes operating in the various systems presented, and it serves as a great starting point for anyone interested in learning more about and conducting research in these specific marine systems.
The bottom line: this book is a wonderful research for students or researchers"
Oceanography Vol 17(4), December 2004
