Media reviews

Praise from Reviewers: "Ecology of Coastal Waters: With Implications for Management, Second Edition is a thorough synthesis that describes the processing of materials in nearshore ecosystems, with an emphasis on the importance of this information for policy issues. The book will be useful as a text for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students interest in coastal marine ecology and resource management. Ken Mann's style is easy to read and informative.--Merryl Alber, PhD, Department of Marine Sciences, University of Georgia "I found few books that give a broad introduction to this subject. Mann's book appears to fill this gap, and I will very likely adopt it as a text when it is published."--Chris Tanner, PhD, Department of Biology, St. Mary's College of Maryland
