Marine Biology is a derivative of the Encyclopedia of Ocean Sciences, 2nd Edition and serves as an important reference on current knowledge and expertise in one convenient and accessible source. Its selection of articles-all written by experts in their field-focuses not only on a broad variety of plant and animal species but they also refer to diverse aspects of their physical, chemical and human environment. The volume is divided into traditional sub-disciplines such as Plankton, Benthos, Fish, Marine Mammals and Seabirds. Each category features articles on the main taxonomic groups as well as articles that discuss important processes such as primary production of phytoplankton, fish locomotion, feeding and foraging, marine mammal diving physiology and seabird conservation. Marine Biology serves as an ideal reference for topical research.
