This book presents an in-depth discussion of the biological and ecological geography of the oceans. It synthesizes locally restricted studies of the ocean to generate a global geography of the vast marine world. Based on patterns of algal ecology, the book divides the ocean into four primary compartments, which are then subdivided into secondary compartments. It includes color insert of the latest in satellite imagery showing the world's oceans, their similarities and differences. It is revised and updated to reflect the latest in oceanographic research. It is ideal for anyone interested in understanding ocean ecology and is accessible and informative.

Pre-Publication comments on the 2nd edition: "It has all the elements that made the first edition such a wonderful book to have and to read. There are too few books like this on the market, which build on a life-time's experience and knowledge in order to say something quite unique and challenging about the oceans. It will be useful for all of those involved with managing the world's oceans, providing for the only rigorous schematic framework available for exploring the heterogeity of the seas and its resources." --Dave Raffaelli, Professor of Environmental Science, University of York
