Oceanographic Processes of Coral Reefs: Physical and Biological Links in the Great Barrier Reef
CRC Press, Dec 20, 2000 - Science - 376 pages
Demonstrating the relevance and need of science in planning the future of the Great Barrier Reef and coral reefs worldwide, Oceanographic Processes of Coral Reefs: Physical and Biological Links in the Great Barrier Reef emphasizes multi-disciplinary processes - physical and biological links - that have emerged as the dominant forces shaping and controlling the ecosystem. The book draws heavily on data from coral reefs in Australia, Indonesia, Thailand, and the Philippines.
Oceanographic Processes of Coral Reefs: Physical and Biological Links in the Great Barrier Reef covers:
Explore how the ecosystem responds to both physical and biological stimuli, and how they interact
Understand processes imperative to create sustainable design strategies
Comprehend the connectivity of biotopes - land, mangroves, seagrass, and corals
Discover the relationship between managing marine resources and managing adjoining land use
Learn how fish behavior and migration patterns control fisheries
