About this book

Phytoplankton are the fundamental sources of nutrients for all marine life, and are a key indicator on ocean productivity. This is a history of the study of these organisms which has developed into the modern science of biological oceanography, and describes the work at two major research centres, at Kiel in Germany and the Plymouth Laboratory in England.
