About this book

Published in conjunction with the 2002 Phytoplankton Productivity Conference, March 18th-22nd in Bangor, Wales, and includes chapters by the 13 keynote speakers at the conference. Individual chapters are be written by leading authorities in the selected areas drawn from both the freshwater and marine communities and include reviews of physiology and biochemistry, measurement of phytoplankton productivity, the supply and uptake of nutrients, variability in processes and production, the evolution of the carbon cycle, and ecosystems.

Plankton forms the cornerstone for all aquatic ecosystems... [this book] will be of particular value to those in aquaculture in which plankton plays a part in production. Aquaculture Magazine
