Comprising the synthesis and analysis of the results of the Census of Marine Life, this most important book brings together the work of around 2000 scientists from 80 nations around the globe. The book is broadly divided into four sections, covering oceans past, oceans present, oceans future and a final section covering the utilisation of the data which has been gathered, and the coordination and communication of the results. This is a book which should find a place on the shelves of all marine scientists, ecologists, conservation biologists, oceanographers, fisheries scientists and environmental biologists.
This comprehensive book is aimed at marine scientists, ecologists, conservation biologists, oceanographers, fisheries scientists and environmental biologists. (In Practice, 1 December 2010) "The ambitious project involved thousands of scientists and led to the discovery of novel creatures such as the hairy yeti crab. The volume addresses the biodiversity of oceans past, present and future, including microorganisms and zooplankton." (Nature, September 2010)
