This is a special volume on ocean biogeography containing chapters bringing the wealth of knowledge of Russian scientists to a global audience. Ocean biogeography was the subject of much marine research carried out by the former USSR, where extensive facilities were provided on a world-wide scale. This book is devoted to the geographical and vertical distribution of life in the open oceans, including the great depths. The contributions range widely from plankton and squid to the bottom fauna of the bathyal, abyssal, and hadal zones.
This is a scholarly and technical work bringing Russian thinking about the biogeography of the oceans to a wider audience. -NORTHEASTERN NATURALIST, 2005 "Each of these reviews is complete within its topics." -THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY
