Advances in Marine Biology, Volume 78, the latest release in a series on all aspects of marine biology, is well known for its contents and editing. This latest addition to the series includes updates on many topics that will appeal to postgraduates and researchers in marine biology, fisheries science, ecology, zoology, and biological oceanography. Specialty areas for the series include marine science, both applied and basic, a wide range of topical areas from all areas of marine ecology, oceanography, fisheries management and molecular biology, and the full range of geographic areas from polar seas, to tropical coral reefs.
- Reviews articles on the latest advances in marine biology
- Authored by leading figures in their respective fields of study
- Presents materials that are widely used by managers, students, and academic professionals in the marine sciences
- Provides value to anyone studying bottlenose dolphins, deep-sea macrofauna, marine invertebrates, pinna nobilis and ecology, amongst other study areas
The community of scientists and academics actively engaged in marine conservation in the Northeastern Pacific Ocean and beyond; members of the commercial and recreational fishing sector that target sharks, as well as their competitors and prey; and fishery policy makers and implementers.
