This is an expansion of the earlier Ocean Pollution (1996), revised by Sindermann (a former administrator at a number of ocean research laboratories of the US federal government) to be somewhat less technically daunting. The book considers the history and pathological consequences of coastal pollution living resource perspective. He first presents eight case studies of harms that have emerged at least partly as a consequence of coastal pollution. He then reviews the effects of coastal pollution on resource species and marine mammal, followed by a consideration of pollution's effects on humans. Annotation :2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
