About the Series

The CRC Marine Biology Series provides state-of-the-art monographs and edited volumes that present recent developments and synthesize important topics in marine biology. Each publication presents a detailed discussion of basic concepts and principles of selected areas of scientific inquiry. The scope of the series is broad, treating both basic and applied marine biology. The series will be of interest to both specialists and nonspecialists engaged in marine biology.

Open Access options are available to editors, authors and contributors to the series. OA makes published academic research freely and permanently available online for anyone, anywhere. OA publications are downloaded 7 times more often, cited 50% more, and mentioned online 10 times more often. Upon publication, OA content is made available in digital format to read and download under a Creative Commons license.
