Media reviews
From the reviews "... I can highly recommend this book to all those who (start to) work in Latin America's coastal environments be it for basic, applied, or conservation research. They will find it a good introduction and overview. It should be present in all university libraries, not only those in Latin America." (Aquatic Ecology)
