Examination of the energy flows within the world's oceans. Kerr and Dickie propose an underlying theory of predator-prey energy transfer: larger species eat smaller species, providing energy exchange across all species within an ecosystem, highlighting the potential of the biomass spectrum methodology for offering practical remedies when these natural systems are exploited by humans.
"Kerr and Dickie are certainly aspiring towards a broader, more holistic ecological formulation, at least in aquatice ecology. For this reason alone, I strongly recommend the book." -- W. Gary Sprules, "Ecology"
