  • Major topics covered include phytoplankton bloom, microbial food web, marine biogeography, global climate change and an overview of fisheries oceanography.
  • Difficult concepts are explained in a straightforward manner, making this book accessible to undergraduates, graduates and researchers alike.
  • Features a chapter on important numerical models which have become indispensable in biological oceanography.
  • Further details of key terms and important topics are highlighted in boxes
  • Models, formulas, methodologies, and techniques are described and explained throughout.

An Instructor manual CD-ROM for this title is available. Please contact our Higher Education team at HigherEducation@wiley.com for more information.
