About this book

Japanese Marine Life provides an overview of Japanese marine fauna and flora, including planktonic and benthic organisms. Introducing the curricula of contemporary practical marine training courses offered at a range of Japanese universities, this is the first English textbook intended for marine biology instructors and students in Japan. It provides essential information on experimental procedures for the major areas of marine biology, including cell and developmental biology, physiology, ecology and environmental sciences, and as such is a valuable resource book for those in Asian countries that share a similar flora and fauna. It also appeals to anyone interested in Japanese marine courses in Europe, the US and other countries.
