This volume of Advances in Marine Biology contains four eclectic
reviews on topics ranging from marine mollusc mucus to deep-sea
hydrothermal vent fauna.
Advances in Marine Biology contains up-to-date reviews of all areas
of marine science, including fisheries science and macro/micro
fauna. Each volume contains peer-reviewed papers detailing the
ecology of marine regions.
