An Introduction to Phytoplanktons: Diversity and Ecology

An Introduction to Phytoplanktons: Diversity and Ecology by Ruma Pal, Avik Kumar Choudhury
Springer | 2014 edition (May 30, 2014) | ISBN-10: 813221837X | 167 pages | PDF | 7 MB

The book, ‘An Introduction to Phytoplanktons - Diversity and Ecology’ is very useful as it covers wide aspects of phytoplankton study including the general idea about cyanobacteria and algal kingdom. It contains different topics related to very basic idea of phytoplanktons such as, types, taxonomic description and the key for identification etc. Together with it, very modern aspects of phytoplankton study including different methodologies needed for research students of botany, ecology, limnology and environmental biology are also included.

Remote Sensing of Aquatic Coastal Ecosystem Processes: Science and Management Applications by Laurie L. Richardson
English | 2 Feb. 2006 | ISBN: 1402039670 | 329 Pages | PDF | 7 MB

The aquatic coastal zone is one of the most challenging targets for environmental remote sensing. Properties such as bottom reflectance, spectrally diverse suspended sediments and phytoplankton communities, diverse benthic communities, and…
Estuarine Nutrient Cycling: The Influence of Primary Producers by Søren Laurentius Nielsen [Repost]

Estuarine Nutrient Cycling: The Influence of Primary Producers: The Fate of Nutrients and Biomass by Søren Laurentius Nielsen
English | Mar. 24, 2005 | ISBN: 1402026382 | 314 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

It is a well-known fact that eutrophication of coastal waters causes significant changes in the species composition of the primary producers. Usually a shift from an ecosystem dominated by sea grasses or large brown algae to an ecosystem dominated by fast-growing green algae or phytoplankton is observed.

Trophic Organization in Coastal Systems (Marine Science)
Publisher: CRC Press | ISBN: 0849311101 | edition 2002 | PDF | 418 pages | 18,2 mb

Derived from an unprecedented research effort covering over 70 field years of field data in a series of studies, Trophic Organization in Coastal Systems represents an alternative approach to coastal research that has been successfully applied to coastal resource management issues. This unique book is based upon a sequence of long-term, interdisciplinary studies of a series of coastal regions in the NE Gulf of Mexico that include nutrient loading, habitat definition, quantified collections of organisms from microbes to fishes, and the determination of the trophic organization that defines the processes that shape the productivity of these areas.A multidisciplinary team of marine scientists, chemists, physical oceanographers, geologists, hydrologists, engineers, experimental biologists, and taxonomists have created a singular database of changes in a series of Gulf of Mexico coastal systems. This field information, together with field and laboratory experimentation, is integrated with the scientific literature to advance our understanding of how coastal food webs work. The central focus is on the relationship of primary production in the form of species-specific phytoplankton communities with associated food webs of coastal systems and the relationship of tropho-dynamic processes to long-term changes (natural and polluted) in such areas
Estuarine Nutrient Cycling: The Influence of Primary Producers: The Fate of Nutrients

Soren Laurentius Nielsen, Gary T. Banta, Morten Foldager Pedersen " Estuarine Nutrient Cycling: The Influence of Primary Producers: The Fate of Nutrients "
Springer | 2005-03-24 | ISBN-1402026382 | Pages: 303 | PDF | 4.9MB

It is a well-known fact that eutrophication of coastal waters causes significant changes in the species composition of the primary producers. Usually a shift from an ecosystem dominated by sea grasses or large brown algae to an ecosystem dominated by fast-growing green algae or phytoplankton is observed. While this shift has been documented in a number of research papers and books, the consequences of this shift are less well known. This book focuses on the consequences of such changes for nutrient cycling.

The aim is to investigate how different types of primary producers influence nutrient cycling in coastal marine waters, and how nutrient cycling changes qualitatively and quantitatively as a consequence of the changes in the primary producer community caused by eutrophication. The various chapters address specific ecological processes such as grazing, decomposition, burial and export of biomass from the ecosystem. The book is intended for researchers and professionals working in the field of coastal marine ecology and estuarine ecology and for advanced students in this field.
