About this book

Readable and well illustrated introductory text, a standard text for students in marine biology and ecology. It now adopts a more applied approach in keeping with current teaching, and includes new chapters on fisheries, the marine ecosystem, conservation and pollution. However, the strength of the text still lies in its discussion of core topics which, despite an increasing emphasis on more applied aspects, remains at the heart of the majority of study.
