Technological improvements have greatly increased the ability of marine scientists to collect and analyze data over large spatial scales, and the resultant insights attainable from interpreting those data vastly increase understanding of poplation dynamics, evolution and biogeography. Marine Metapopulations provides a synthesis of existing information and understanding, and frames the most important future directions and issues.
* First book to systematically apply metapopulation theory directly to marine systems
*Contributions from leading international ecologists and fisheries biologists
*Perspectives on a broad array of marine organisms and ecosystems, from coastal estuaries to shallow reefs to deep-sea hydrothermal vents
*Critical science for improved management of marine resources
*Paves the way for future research on large-scale spatial ecology of marine systems
Marine researchers, natural resource managers, marine and terrestrial ecologists, and graduate students
"This is the right book at the right time; for those not familiar with marine metapopulations, it is an excellent introduction. it will also serve as a valuable reference for those actively engaged in this research...Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above."
