Marine Community Ecology offers a current overview of what is known about the structure and organization of the assemblages of organisms that live on the sea floor. Written by leading researchers, the book consists of nineteen chapters organized into three parts. The first eight chapters explore general processes that generate pattern in benthic communities. The middle part examines the ecology of specific marine benthic community types, ranging from rocky shores and soft substrate habitats to seagrass beds and coral reefs. The final three chapters examine conservation and management issues of marine communities.
