Description

The authors of this book have explored the major oceans of the world to document the diversity of habitats, structures and marine food webs.
From coastal zones to deep sea habitats, several environments are investigated: the phyto-plankton system, the first level of ecological and climatic dynamics via the carbon cycle; the coral ecosystems and their associated coastal seagrass, among the most diverse on the planet; and the deep ecosystems, oases organized around hydrothermal vents on mid-ocean ridges.
In order to reveal the spatial and temporal dynamics of these systems and the complexity of trophic interactions, observation strategies and long-term monitoring were needed.
In addition, the topics covered allow the reader to address the problem of preservation of resources, living or non-living, and the services rendered to our societies endangered by environmental change. Thus, concepts and strategies emerge as ecological resilience.
Like the previous volumes, this seventh book of the “Seas and Oceans” Set adopts a transversal approach that leads to the governance and sustainable management of marine environment.
