* Provides an overview of state-of-the-art biogeochemical and ecological modelling of the greater North Sea
* Explores the role, routes, and effects of manganese in aquatic crustaceans
* Highlights the physical constraints imposed by the material behavior of sand and mud, distinguishing elastic behavior of muds from granular behavior of sands
* Reviews results of studies on coralligenous concretions, including environmental factors which influence the development of corelligenous communities, their distribution, types, assemblages, builders, and eroders * Presents new results on defensive granular structures as well as a compilation of literature data in sea slugs
* Describes the general principles of rafting and how they contribute to population connectivity
* Discusses the direct and indirect effects of climate change on marine mammals and their conservation
