9780198716556: The Biology of Mangroves and Seagrasses

Mangroves and seagrasses form extensive and highly productive ecosystems that are both biologically diverse and economically valuable. This book, now in its third edition and fully updated throughout, continues to provide a current and comprehensive introduction to all aspects of the biology and ecology of mangroves and seagrasses. Using a global range of examples and case studies, it describes the unique adaptations of these plants to their exacting environments; the rich and diverse communities of organisms that depend on mangrove forests and seagrass meadows (including tree-climbing shrimps, synchronously flashing fireflies, and 'gardening' seacows); the links between mangrove, seagrass, and other habitats; and the evolution, biodiversity, and biogeography of mangroves and seagrasses. The economic value of mangroves and seagrasses is also discussed, including approaches to rational management of these vital resources and techniques for the restoration of degraded habitats. A final chapter, new to this edition, examines the potential effects of global climate change including sea level rise.

As with other titles in the Biology of Habitats Series, particular emphasis is placed on the organisms that dominate these fascinating aquatic ecosystems although pollution, conservation, and experimental aspects are also considered. This accessible textbook assumes no previous knowledge of mangrove or seagrass ecology and is intended for senior undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professional ecologists, conservation practitioners, and resource managers.

Recensione:

Review from previous edition The book is a well-written, introductory text covering a wide range of topics ... and is the first book that can be realistically used as an undergraduate textbook on the subject. ( Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology)

Hogarth has produced an impressive book on the mangrove ecosystem...I strongly recommend it as an introductory text for naturalists, students, and professional biologists embarking on studies in mangrove environments. ( Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin)

L'autore:

Peter J. Hogarth studied Zoology at Edinburgh University, graduating with BSc Zoology in 1965.
