About this book

This popular text describes the estuarine environment and the physical and biological factors important within it, the responses of the flora and fauna to its stresses, and the estuarine food web. This new edition builds upon the strengths of the earlier editions but has been thoroughly revised throughout. It contains a new emphasis on pollution, climate change, conservation and management. The new co-author brings a human impact dimension to the revised book.

Fortunately, the content remains, not unchanged, but the essentials preserved and supplemented ... all the things the students liked in the previous editions - the simple Figures and Tables, the clear and concise expositions - are still there, but augmented with the new syntheses. Bulletin of the Estuarine & Coastal Sciences Association ... a concise and relatively comprehensive introduction to estuarine ecology for the non-specialist. Aquaculture International
