Contents Notes
Background, theory, and issues -- Estuarine geomorphology and physical oceanography -- Estuarine chemistry -- Estuarine phytoplankton -- Intertidal wetlands: saltmarshes and mangrove swamps -- Esuarine seagrasses -- Microbial ecology and organic detritus in estuaries -- Zooplankton, the drifting consumers -- The estuarine bottom and benthic subsystem -- Nekton, the free swimming consumers -- The role of wildlife in estuarine ecosystems -- Estuarine fisheries -- Human impact in estuaries. This book covers the physical and chemical aspects of estuaries, the biology and ecology of key organisms, the flow of organic matter through estuaries, and human interactions, such as the environmental impact of fisheries on estuaries and the effects of global climate change on these important ecosystems. Each chapter will begin with basic concepts and then move on to describing applications and current practice. This new edition is being authored by a team of world experts from the estuarine science community.
