Ecological Geography of the Sea
- Alan Longhurst, Galerie l'Academie, Cajarc, France
This book presents an in-depth discussion of the biological and ecological geography of the oceans. It synthesizes locally restricted studies of the ocean to generate a global geography of the vast marine world.Based on patterns of algal ecology, the book divides the ocean into four primary compartments, which are then subdivided into secondary compartments.
Faculty, researchers and graduate students interested in oceanography, marine biology, marine ecology, and other marine sciences. Sometimes used as an undergrad text though not written specifically for this purpose.
