Marine Biology: An Ecological Approach
Appropriate for undergraduate majors and graduate students in marine biology and marine ecology, Marine Biology: An Ecological Approach emphasizes the ecological principles that govern marine life throughout all environments within the world's oceans. Its unique ecological approach adds real-world relevance by exploring how organisms interact within their individual ecosystems. The text is organized by habitat and each habitat receives detailed, in-depth coverage, giving instructors flexibility to focus on their particular areas of interest. The Fifth Edition is fully updated with the latest research data and topics, including expanded coverage of the human impact on oceans, oceanic dead zones, and coral reefs. In addition to Nybakken's engaging writing style, the text now offers enhanced pedagogy with new end-of-chapter summaries, a new four-color design to complement the art program, an art CD-ROM for instructors, and a text specific Companion Web site.

If the copepods are so efficient at reducing the phytoplankton population, how
does the spring bloom in the North Atlantic ever get started? The answer to this is
that the copepods reproduce more slowly than the phytoplankton; thus, in early ...
The phytoplankton numbers, however, now begin to decrease due to nutrient
exhaustion and grazing by the high numbers of Calanus. Phytoplankton
production now becomes dependent on nutrient regeneration in the euphotic
zone. Finally ...
