Seaweed Ecology and Physiology

Seaweed Ecology and Physiology

A rewritten and reorganized edition of The Physiological Ecology of Seaweeds (1985), this book contains a new introductory chapter reviewing seaweed morphology, cytology, life histories and an expanded treatment of tropical seaweeds. The final chapter on mariculture is much larger, and includes a case study on how principles of physiological ecology were applied in developing the carrageenan industry. Also contains an appendix summarizing the taxonomic position and nomenclature of the species mentioned in the book.


"...this greatly expanded version will become a valuable text and resource book for graduate and undergraduate students and professionals, just as its predecessor was....Highly recommended for libraries with an aquatic component in their college's curriculum, and definitely worth the price in replacing the earlier version."
