Technological improvements have greatly increased the ability of marine scientists to collect and analyze data over large spatial scales, and the resultant insights attainable from interpreting those data vastly increase understanding of population dynamics, evolution and biogeography. "Marine Metapopulations" provides a synthesis of existing information and understanding, and frames the most important future directions and issues. This is the first book to systematically apply metapopulation theory directly to marine systems. It includes contributions from leading international ecologists and fisheries biologists. There are perspectives on a broad array of marine organisms and ecosystems, from coastal estuaries to shallow reefs to deep-sea hydrothermal vents. It is a critical science for improved management of marine resources. It paves the way for future research on large-scale spatial ecology of marine systems.
