  This book offers a mechanistic approach to the study of ocean ecology by exploring biological interactions in plankton at the individual level. The book focuses on encounter mechanisms, since the pace of life in the ocean intimately relates to the rate at which encounters happen.4/5(3). About this book All relevant ecological aspects of plankton, especially seasonal changes in the species composition, the role of competition for limiting resources in species replacements, the role of parasitism, predation and competition in seasonal succession are treated in detail considering phytoplankton, zooplankton and bacteroplankton. Book Description. This Second Edition of Plankton is a fully updated introduction to the biology, ecology and identification of plankton and their use in monitoring water quality. It includes expanded, illustrated descriptions of all major groups of freshwater, coastal and marine phytoplankton and zooplankton and a new chapter on teaching science using plankton. The book entitled Ecology of Plankton has been written covering applied aspects of Limnology in order to cater to the needs of students, research scholars and teachers in college and university. A.

The book is divided into three sections: an overview of plankton ecology, an assessment of methodology in plankton research covering sampling, preservation, and counting of samples, and a taxonomic guide richly illustrated with detailed line drawings to aid identification/5(2). Protozoan Plankton Ecology. J.A. Laybourn-Parry. Springer Science & Business Media, - Science - pages. 0 Reviews. This book provides aquatic biologists with a concise text on the biology, temporal and spatial distribution patterns, and the functional role of planktonic protozoa in fresh, brackish and marine waters. This practical book gives an introduction to the biology and ecology of plankton and its use as a tool for monitoring water quality. It explores the ecology of plankton, its associated environmental and water quality issues, and its importance as an environmental indicator.

  This practical book provides a comprehensive introduction to the biology and ecology of plankton and describes its use as a tool for monitoring water . The book concludes by discussing conservation in the region, highlighting regional biodiversity hotspots where the challenges of climate change, habitat loss, and other threats to biodiversity may be particularly acute. Plankton Ecology of the Southwestern Atlantic is a timely synthesis of the field, setting a new baseline for future research. In addition to its use as a valid reference book for plankton ecology, this monograph may well be used as a model for other kinds of ecological communities. Keywords.
