Synopsis: Life in the World's Oceans: Diversity, Abundance and Distribution is a true landmark publication.

Comprising the synthesis and analysis of the results of the Census of Marine Life this most important book brings together the work of around 2000 scientists from 80 nations around the globe.

The book is broadly divided into four sections, covering oceans past, oceans present, oceans future and a final section covering the utilisation of the data which has been gathered, and the coordination and communication of the results.

Edited by Professor Alasdair Mcintyre, Marine Life is a book which should find a place on the shelves of all marine scientists, ecologists, conservation biologists, oceanographers, fisheries scientists and environmental biologists. All universities and research establishments where biological, earth and fisheries science are studied and taught should have copies of this essential book on their shelves.

  • A true landmark publication
  • One of the most important marine science books ever published
  • Contributions from many world leading researchers
  • Synthesis of a huge amount of important data
  • Represents the culmination of 10 years' research by 2000 scientists from 80 countries

From the Back Cover: Life in the World?s Oceans is a true landmark publication, distilling the efforts of thousands of marine biologists, ecologists, oceanographers and statisticians worldwide who have been involved in the first decadal Census of Marine Life.

Broadly divided into six parts, Life in the World?s Oceans commences with a look at life in oceans past, followed by in-depth chapters covering the current oceans? realms, including coral reefs, seamounts, the deep sea and the polar regions. Coverage of global distributions of microbes and zooplankton is followed by a section reviewing animal movements within the oceans. The book concludes with chapters covering the future of marine animal populations, and the utilization of the data contained within the Census? database, the Ocean Biogeographic Information System.

Life in the World?s Oceans:

  • provides a huge wealth of distilled information, vitally important in future marine studies;
  • reports on the total richness of the oceans? biodiversity;
  • represents the work of thousands of scientists involved in the Census;
  • puts marine biodiversity in the foreground of the scientific landscape.

Thoroughly edited by the late Professor Alasdair McIntyre, who was a world leader in marine sciences, and beautifully produced in full color throughout, Life in the World?s Oceans is an essential purchase for all libraries in universities and research institutions throughout the world. All those involved in scientific work on the oceans, including biological scientists, oceanographers, marine and environmental scientists, should have copies of this exceptional book on their shelves.
