About this book

Up-to-date review of marine ecosystem resilience in the face of environmental disturbance or climate change.

[The book] gives an unusual and unique perspective...This is a well written, up-to-date review of the fundamental mechanisms and interactions operating in some representative marine systems...The book could serve as a nice introduction, reference guide, and source of current literature for students and researchers... ...the book certainly provides a comprehensive introduction to the major biogeochemical processes operating in the various systems presented, and it serves as a great starting point for anyone interested in learning more about and conducting research in these specific marine systems. The bottom line: this book is a wonderful research for students or researchers Oceanography Vol 17(4), December 2004
