Description

Ecology of Marine Protozoa provides an in-depth overview of the dynamics of marine protozoa populations, a vital component of the oceanic food chain. It features contributions from eleven internationally known oceanographers and marine biologists on important topics such as protozoan growth and nutrition, physiology, feeding evolution, symbiosis, taxonomy, and palaeobiology.

Review quote

"Beginners and crossovers are in for a treat, but specialists will also be pleasantly surprised." --BioScience"There is a lot of information in this book and most of it will be of immediate interest to ecologists." --Trends in Ecology and Evolution"This collection of chapters will certainly be of interest to marine microbial ecologists and to protozoologists in general . . . . It is well produced . . . and all the chapters are written in an interesting and readable style . . . . Certainly recommended for any natural science library." --The Quarterly Review of Biology
