About this book

Provides information that should lead to better ways to reduce fouling and corrosion within the marine environment.


The influence of marine microbes on biofouling; factors influencing the settlement of macrofoulers; induction of larval settlement and metamorphosis by neuroactive compounds in marine invertebrates; role of secondary metabolites from algae and seagrasses in biofouling control' fouling and natural products as antifoulants; endocrine mechanisms in branches and potential use of neuroregulators in developing antifouling technologies; potential antifouling natural products from ascidians; antifouling properties of the dogfish egg-case and their possible application in developing non-toxic alternatives to antifouling paints; status and potential of natural product antifoulings; corrosion inhibition of zinc pigments inaqueous media; the antifouling potential of silicone elastomer polymers; the status and future of biocides in marine biofouling prevention; possible pesticides targets - neuromuscular and reproductive pharmacology of zebra mussels.
