Summary

Greatly updated and expanded, this new edition of Biological Oceanography presents a current understanding of ocean ecology emphasizing the character of marine organisms from viruses to fish and worms, together with their significance to their habitats and to each other. Throughout, the book has been revised to account for recent advances in this rapidly changing field with a new chapter added reviewing approaches to pelagic food webs. Essential reading for senior undergraduate and graduate students of ocean ecology and professional marine ecologists.

Author Biography

Charlie Miller, now Emeritus Professor of Oceanography at Oregon State University, taught biological oceanography and zooplankton biology for many years. His research contributions have concentrated on seasonal processes in the ecology of marine zooplankton, particularly copepods, in the Oregon coastal zone and estuaries, the Gulf of Alaska, Georges Bank and the Gulf of Maine.

Patricia Wheeler, now Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University, taught biological oceanography and phytoplankton physiology there for many years. Her research contributions address phytoplankton nutrient dynamics and include work on dissolved organic carbon and nitrogen. She conducted field work in the Equatorial Pacific, the northern California Current system and the Arctic Ocean.
