Overview

Dynamics of Marine Ecosystems, Second Edition, heightens our awareness of the relationship between the physical and biological processes and their impact on marine ecosystems. Since publication of the first edition, there has been a surge of interest in the biological-physical interactions in the ocean, as seen by the increased number of new publications in integrated oceanography. The second edition of this widely respected text incorporates recent research to explain what we now know about certain marine processes. The text is supported by numerous tables, graphs, illustrations, chapter-end summaries, and text boxes highlighting forumulas and physical details.


  • Incorporates latest research in marine processes.
