About this book

Marine Ecological Field Methods describes marine ecological sampling equipment, methods and analysis, ranging from physical parameters to fish, microalgae, zooplankton, benthos and macroalgae.

Evolved from material used to teach a course for Marine Biology Master's students at the University of Bergen in Norway, Marine Ecological Field Methods covers survey and sampling design, sample and data collection and processing, and data analysis. The research question and characteristics of the organisms and habitat dictate what sampling equipment is required. Information is included on sampling equipment, ranging from those that are useful in shallow nearshore areas, such as bottles, secchi discs, and gillnets or beach seines to those deployed from large research ships for studies offshore, such as remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), fishing trawls, and hydroacoustics, or remote observation completed using satellites.
