About this book

Network Economics of Marine Ecosystems and Their Exploitation addresses the question of the double exposure of marine ecosystems, i.e. to both global climate changes and economic globalization. The book contains a short, but self sufficient mathematical introduction, the formalization in the context of Network economics of global commodity chains, with both trophic and economic processes, and a series of cases studies, going from the re-addressing of fundamental ecological questions such as Gause's exclusion principles to practical studies such as the representation of the global supply chain for tuna.
