This new edition of Biological Oceanography has been greatlyupdated and expanded since its initial publication in 2004. Itpresents current understanding of ocean ecology emphasizing thecharacter of marine organisms from viruses to fish and worms,together with their significance to their habitats and to eachother. The book initially emphasizes pelagic organisms and processes,but benthos, hydrothermal vents, climate-change effects, andfisheries all receive attention.

Produktbeschreibung
This new edition of Biological Oceanography has been greatlyupdated and expanded since its initial publication in 2004. Itpresents current understanding of ocean ecology emphasizing thecharacter of marine organisms from viruses to fish and worms,together with their significance to their habitats and to eachother. The book initially emphasizes pelagic organisms and processes,but benthos, hydrothermal vents, climate-change effects, andfisheries all receive attention. The chapter on oceanic biomes hasbeen greatly expanded and a new chapter reviewing approaches topelagic food webs has been added. Throughout, the book has beenrevised to account for recent advances in this rapidly changingfield. The increased importance of molecular genetic data acrossthe field is evident in most of the chapters. As with the previous edition, the book is primarily written forsenior undergraduate and graduate students of ocean ecology andprofessional marine ecologists.

Autorenporträt
Charlie Miller, now Emeritus Professor of Oceanography atOregon State University, taught biological oceanography andzooplankton biology for many years. His research contributions haveconcentrated on seasonal processes in the ecology of marinezooplankton, particularly copepods, in the Oregon coastal zone andestuaries, the Gulf of Alaska, Georges Bank and the Gulf of Maine. Patricia Wheeler, now Emeritus Distinguished Professor ofOceanic and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University, taughtbiological oceanography and phytoplankton physiology there for manyyears. Her research contributions address phytoplankton nutrientdynamics and include work on dissolved organic carbon and nitrogen.She conducted field work in the Equatorial Pacific, the northernCalifornia Current system and the Arctic Ocean.
