Overview

This text/reference covers estuarine ecology, providing a concise synthesis of information on the structure and function of these key ecosystems critical to the life cycles (especially breeding) of fish and other aquatic animals. Readable and basic enough to be used as text, it is also detailed and thorough enough to serve as a standard reference. Covers physical and chemical aspects of estuaries, the biology and ecology of key organisms, the flow of organic matter through estuaries, and human interactions, such as the environmental impact on estuaries of fisheries.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Overall, this is a worthwhile contribution. Students, instructors, and researchers interested in estuaries will want access to this book. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (Choice, 1 August 2013)

"In conclusion, I have no hesitation in commending the editors and authors of the chapters on a job well done. This treatise clearly meets the need for an introductory text on estuarine ecology and is a must for any aspiring or established scientist within this field." (Marine Biology Research, 3 June 2013)
