9780195067323: Concepts in Biological Oceanography: An Interdisciplinary Primer

This textbook for advanced level courses in oceanography focuses on the interaction of ecological and physical processes that govern the ocean. The book begins with an introduction to ecology, using foraging theory and analytic formulation of encounter rates of predator and prey as organizing principles. Examples used are primarily marine to convey how marine systems differ from terrestrial environments. These differences, which carry through the remainder of the book, arise primarily through the ways in which deposit feeders process seafloor muds, suspension feeders extract particles from seawater, bacteria absorb solutes, and marine plants gather nutrients and light. The next section of the book is devoted to central issues of biological oceanography: controls of primary production, the role of bacteria, and questions of recruitment. The last part treats interdisciplinary topics as the arena in which the non-biological environmental scientist is most likely to find need for some biological background. The book is designed to introduce and develop concepts rather than to give extensive factual detail.

About the Author:

Peter A. Jumars is at University of Washington.

Review:

The book's text and theories are comprehensive....It is an advanced level textbook which introduces biological oceanography via the interaction of biological and physical processes for biological and physical oceanographers." --Sci-Tech News

"Particularly valuable are the annotated reference lists at the end of each chapter. Although intended for physical oceanographers, there is much here for the biologist as well, and the volume is written in a lively and humorous style that is all too often lacking in undergraduate textbooks.
An excellent book, highly recommended." --Choice

"Welcome. . . . it is replete with examples of closed-form solutions to theoretical problems. They are one of its strengths. . . . up-to-date. [Non-biologists], as well as biologists, will refer to it with profit. . . . there is much of interest to discover in it." --Trevor Platt (Bedford
Inst. of Oceanography), Limnology and Oceanography

"A pioneering attempt to make the subject of biological oceanography user-friendly to the nonbiologist....I recommend it for knowledgeable professors who do not need nor want a textbook that provides systematic and comprehensive treatment that rapidly becomes dated. The value of this book it
is that it presents a unique and stimulating way of thinking and organizing one's thoughts....It is an interesting attempt to view the field of biological oceanography through the eyes of physical scientists: it stimulates us to fill in the gaps, locate the missing points, and complete the picture
ourselves-a pedagogical tactic that has proven effective in the past." --The Quarterly Review of Biology
