About this book

This volume provides the first comprehensive overview of the enormous ecological diversity of Baltic coastal ecosystems. A short introduction into the Baltic Sea as a reference ecosystem is followed by detailed descriptions of the characteristics of coastal ecosystems. Ecological case studies from the following four regions illustrate the different reactions of these ecosystems to natural and anthropogenic influences: Southern Baltic coast: Fjörden, Boddens, Lagoons and nearshore zones, Eastern Baltic coast: Gulf of Gdańsk, Gulf of Riga, Northeastern Baltic coast: Neva Estuary and Gulf of Finland, Western Baltic coast: Stockholm Archipelago, Askö area and Himmerfjärden, Odense Fjord and Kerteminde Fjord/Kertinge Nor.

Ecology of Baltic Coastal Waters also presents a synthesis of the common and distinguishing characteristics and processes of the coastal waters compared with the Baltic Proper, as well as highlighting research deficits. An outlook on further developments in coastal research rounds off the volume.

Media reviews

"Dr. Ulrich Schiewer was Professor of Ecology at the University of Rostock (Germany). [...] In this book, he has [...] aim to describe and compare the diverse Baltic coastal ecosystems and their response to cultural eutrophication as the main driver of coastal change. [...] the book gives an excellent overview of the diversity of coastal types in the Baltic region. [...] I can recommend the book for students [...] . Scientists interested in Baltic Sea Ecology will find a good starting point in this book."
– Justus E. E. van Beusekom, Basic and Applied Ecology, Vol. 10 (7), 2009
