Oceanography and Marine Biology: An Annual Review' remains one of the most cited sources in marine science and oceanography. The ever-increasing interest in work in oceanography and marine biology and its relevance to global environmental issues, especially global climate change and its impacts, creates a demand for authoritative reviews summarizing the results of recent research. For more than 50 years, OMBAR has been an essential reference for research workers and students in all fields of marine science.

This volume considers such diverse topics as optimal design for ecosystem-level ocean observatories, the oceanography and ecology of Ningaloo, human pressures and the emergence of novel marine ecosystems, and priority species to support the functional integrity of coral reefs. Five of the nine peer-reviewed contributions in Volume 58 are available to read Open Access on the book’s www.routledge.com webpage.

An international Editorial Board ensures global relevance, with editors from the UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore. The series volumes find a place in the libraries of not only marine laboratories and institutes, but also universities.
