Overview

This book takes an unusual approach to the subject of indicator organisms. Rather than provide lists or case studies of indicators of various marine systems, the volume is intended to place the concept of using organisms to "tell" us something about the environment within the context of modern marine sciences. It identifies the state-of-the-art in indicator organism utilization and shows how indicator techniques integrate with new technologies. This book will serve a broad audience and will serve to stimulate the dialogue between disciplines (e.g., environmental managers and biological oceanographers). Furthermore, the volume is designed to reach those who, sometimes without a great deal of training, must deal with biological variables in their work.
