Description of this Book

Marine Ecology examines the ecological issues of marine ecosystems in unprecedented scope and depth. With contributions from an impressive group of Australian and New Zealand authors, the book is comprehensive in its examination of ecology from the perspective of Australian ecosystems and their future, and set a new standard in texts on marine ecology.
The book begins with an examination of the fundamentals of marine ecology, then sets the Australian context by explaining the biogeographic patterns and processes of the continent. It then provides an overview of the major marine ecosystems, and finishes with the local through global changes to their ecology. This information equips Australian and international students and researchers with a cutting-edge view of Australian systems. Of its nature, it will also identify the deficiencies in capacity and progress of Australian marine ecology and become a required text into the foreseeable future.
