About this book

Written in an accessible style, Coastal Pollution: Effects on Living Resources and Humans presents a comprehensive introduction to the scope of scientific understanding of contamination from human activities upon living marine resources. The author provides an accurate report of the state of the inshore marine environment and its inhabitants, discussing coastal habitat and analyzing findings from modeling and other research efforts. The text covers the effects of coastal and estuarine pollution on resource population size, ecosystem habitats, and aquaculture. It also features an in-depth review of pollution-related problems, including PCBs, harmful algae blooms, cholera, and "black tides."
