Biography

Mark Bertness is Robert Brown Professor of Biology at Brown University, USA. His research focuses on the structure, dynamics and conservation of shoreline communities – particularly salt marsh plant communities – and the sessile invertebrate and seaweed communities of rocky shores.

John Bruno is a marine ecologist and Professor at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA. His research is focused on marine biodiversity, coral reef ecology and conservation, and the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems. He is co-developer of the oceans website SeaMonster (www.theseamonster.net).

Brian Silliman is the Rachel Carson Associate Professor of Marine Conservation Biology in the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University, USA. Dr. Silliman was named a David H. Smith Conservation Fellow with The Nature Conservancy in 2004 and a Visiting Professor with the Royal Netherlands Society of Arts and Sciences in 2011. He has also received several awards, including the Young Investigator Award from the American Society of Naturalists (2006), a Young Investigator Grant Award from the Andrew Mellon Foundation (2007), and a NSF Career Grant Award (2011).

Jay Stachowicz is Professor of Ecology and Evolution at The University of California Davis, USA. Dr. Stachowicz co-edited the book Species Invasions: Insights into Ecology, Evolution, and Biogeography, published by Sinauer Associates in 2005. He was awarded the George Mercer Prize from the Ecological Society of America in 2004 and the UC Davis Academic Senate Teaching Award in 2012. He is also an Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellow.

Media reviews

"In the second edition of Marine Community Ecology and Conservation, Bertness and co-editors provide an update of the dominant elements of marine community ecology as well as the now maturing science of our generation: conservation. The editors state that the book is intended to fill intellectual gaps and update readers on new developments in applied ecology in the oceans. The book targets upper-level undergraduate to graduate level users. We feel that the book achieves this goal and is a very useful resource for graduate-level readers."
– Anna Shaffer, Marine Ecology

"Overall, I recommend this thoughtfully conceived compendium of essays on marine community ecology for its intended audiences. It achieves broad coverage, comprehensive insights, and novel visions."
– Charles H. Peterson, The Quarterly Review of Biology

"Marine Community Ecology and Conservation is a rich source of information suitable for advanced undergraduates to advanced professionals in marine ecology and conservation. Having taught marine biology, ecology, and conservation courses for more than 30 years, I recommend this book without reservation."
– Jeanine L. Olsen, Restoration Ecology
