"...an excellent introduction to the vast field of biological oceanography at a reasonably sophisticated level, and is well worth reading on the basis of its wonderful style alone." (Botanica Marina, 2005) "...a book written by someone who is not afriad of controversy, who speaks his mind and who has a wealth of experience in understanding how biological systems function in the ocean... I found [it] to be fun to read: easy on the eye, informative, witty in places and caustic in others, and with firm opinions inserted at intervals, just to stir up some controversy." "In summary, this is an extremely useful and interesting textbook on the complex field of biological oceanography." (African Journal of Aquatic Science, 2005, 30(1))Reseña del editor:
