About this book

The first book to systematically apply metapopulation theory directly to marine systems. Technological improvements have greatly increased the ability of marine scientists to collect and analyze data over large spatial scales, and the resultant insights attainable from interpreting those data vastly increase understanding of population dynamics, evolution and biogeography. Marine Metapopulations provides a synthesis of existing information and understanding, and frames the most important future directions and issues.

Table of contents:
1:The Merging of Metapopulation Theory and Marine Ecology: Establishing the Historical Context
Section I: Fishes
2:The Metapopulation Ecology of Coral Reef Fishes 3:Metapopulation Structure in Temperate Rock Reef Fishes 4:Estuarine and Diadromous Fish Metapopulations Section
II: Invertebrates
5:Metapopulation Dynamics of Hard Corals
6:Population and Spatial Structure of Two Common Temperate Reef Hervibores: Abalone and Sea-Urchins
7:Rocky Intertidal Invertebrates: The Potential for Metapopulations Within and Among Shores
8:Metapopulation Dynamics of Coastal Decapods
9:A Metaopulation Approach to Interpreting Diversity at Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vents Section III: Plants and Algae
10:A Metapopulation Perspective on Patch Dynamics and Connectivity of Giant Kelp
11: Seagrasses and the Metapopulation Concept: Developoing a Regional Approach to the Study of Extinction, Colonization and Dispersal
Section IV: Perspectives
12: Conservation Dynamics of Marine Metapopulations with Dispersing Larvae
13: Genetic Approacches to Understanding Marine Metapopulation Dynamics
14: Metapopulation Dynamics and Community Ecology of Marine Systems
15: Metapopulation Ecology and Marine Conservation
16:The Future of Metapopulation Science in Marine Ecology.

This is the right book at the right time; for those not familiar with marine metapopulations, it is an excellent introduction. it will also serve as a valuable reference for those actively engaged in this research...Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above. - G.C. Jensen in CHOICE
