Biology of the Southern Ocean: second edition / George A. Knox.

Title: Biology of the Southern Ocean: second edition / George A. Knox.
Author(s): Knox, George A.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press
Abstract: Comprehensive account of marine biology of Southern Ocean includes physico-chemical environment; phytoplankton, primary production, sea ice microbial communities and zooplankton; biology and ecology of krill; role of nekton, fish, seals, whales and birds as higher consumers; benthic communities and life beneath fast ice and ice shelves, with particular reference to ice-edge processes; recent advances in understanding decomposition processes, and role of bacteria and protozoa; impact of resource exploitation on marine ecosystem, and management of marine resources; effects of ultraviolet radiation, global warming, and human impacts.
