Reflecting increased interest in the field and its relevance in global environmental issues, Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review, Volume 47 provides authoritative reviews that summarize results of recent research in basic areas of marine research, exploring topics of special and topical importance while adding to new areas as they arise. This volume, part of a series that regards the all marine sciences as a complete unit, features contributions from experts involved in biological, chemical, geological, and physical aspects of marine science. These features along with the inclusion of a full color insert and an extensive reference list, make the text an essential reference for researchers and students in all fields of marine science.


"This series makes up a standard reference library in the entire subdiscipline of Marine Biology."


"It is an invaluable information source for individual researchers who wish to keep abreast of topics going beyond their own (often narrow) fields of interest"

-P.S.Z.N.I: Marine Ecology

"That most marine scientists can usually guarantee finding at least one review in every issue…is a measure of the success established by this indispensable series."

-Journal of Natural History

"…The coverage and quality of the papers is such that all marine scientists, of whatever discipline, will need it readily available…A major strength of this series, which gives the reviews enduring value is the willingness to publish comprehensive reference lists…"

-JOURNAL OF experimental marine biology and ecology
