The classic introduction to estuarine ecology, completely revised and updated

Estuaries are among the most biologically productive ecosystems on the planet—critical to the life cycles of fish, other aquatic animals, and the creatures that feed on them. Estuarine Ecology, Second Edition covers the physical and chemical aspects of estuaries, the biology and ecology of key organisms, the flow of organic matter through estuaries, and human interactions, such as the environmental impact of fisheries on estuaries and the changing climate's effect on these important ecosystems.

Authored by a team of world experts from the estuarine science community, this long-awaited, full-color edition includes new chapters covering phytoplankton, seagrasses, coastal marshes, mangroves, benthic algae, Integrated Coastal Zone Management techniques, and the effects of global climate change. It also features an entirely new section on estuarine ecosystem processes, trophic webs, ecosystem metabolism, and the interactions between estuaries and other ecosystems such as wetlands and marshes.

Estuarine Ecology contains the following chapters:

  • Introduction to Estuarine Ecology
  • Estuarine Chemistry
  • Coastal Marshes
  • Estuarine Benthic Algae
  • Estuarine Microbial Food Webs
