This book examines recent marine research in the tropics and outlines the crucial differences between these systems and those of temperate or boreal seas. It addresses the conservation and management of fragile tropical ecosystems such as mangroves and coral reefs.
This will be a useful reference book, particularly because of the inclusion of the tropical literature. It would be very appropriate as a textbook for graduate marine ecology courses, particularly ones that focus on comparative ecology. --Jane M. Caffrey, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 75, No. 2 "a balanced approach to the topicappropriate as a reference for marine ecologists and as a text for advanced courses in coastal ecology." --C. E. Tanner, St. Mary's College of Maryland "There is an enormous amount of information in the book and Alongi has done an excellent job bringing together the recent literature." -Ecological Engineering, Vol. 16, 2001
