9780198549352: The Biology of Rocky Shores (Biology of Habitats Series)

This work offers an introduction to the biology of the unique organisms that inhabit rocky coastal ecosystems. Using examples from all over the world, the book serves as an ideal resource for instruction, either in the field or lecture hall. It describes the physical factors that affect organisms, the biology of the animals and plants that live on the shore, the factors that control them, and the communities they form. The authors provide examples of observations and experiments that can be conducted either in the lab, or on-site. They also address key problems of pollution and conservation in the context of their effects on biodiversity. The work will interest all students of marine biology, along with professional marine biologists and amateur naturalists.

About the Author :

Colin Little is at University of Bristol. J. A. Kitching is at University of East Anglia.

Review :


"Although manuals for species identification have been available, there has not been a suitable text devoted to this habitat. Little and Kitching have done a fine job in clearly presenting information about the individual species and the communities to which they belong."--Choice


"Chapters deal with the physical factors of the rocky shore and how they affect the physiology and behavior of major groups of organisms such as algae grazers, suspension feeders, and predators. The structure and function of rocky-shore communities is also covered. The concluding chapter examines the effects of pollution and conservation on species biodiversity."--BIOSIS
