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.

*Includes color insert of the latest in satellite imagery showing the world's oceans, their similarities and differences

*Revised and updated to reflect the latest in oceanographic research

*Ideal for anyone interested in understanding ocean ecology -- accessible and informative

Book Description:

The 'tour-de-force' of ocean studies revised and updated by the winner of the 1997 Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography

From the Back Cover:

From the Prepublication Reviews
"...A thorough and thoughtful work and I think a wonderful gift to the next generation of oceanographers."
--JOHN LAZIER, Bedford Institute of Oceanography

"This book is a tour de force. Alan Longhurst has written the book that every marine biogeographer would aspire to write, yet only an exceptional few will have the breadth of experience, interpretive skills and overall competence to achieve. It will be a book that all serious students of oceanography will have to possess, because not only they will constantly be referring to it, but also because any copy in their library will be instantly purloined."
--MARTIN ANGEL, Southampton Oceanography Centre

Praise for the Book
"Alan Longhurst's masterful and stimulating book... beautifully shows us that the pelagic ecology of many ocean regions can be understood using a few fundamental concepts. With the coherent and simplified understanding presented in this book, everyone from the specialist to the layman will look at the ocean with new interest and appreciation."
--Sharon L. Smith in SCIENCE
"We were all waiting for this book... (its) excellence guarantees that the overall structure will remain, and that the well deserved eponym [previously referred to as Longhurst Areas] will stick."
--Daniel Pauly in TRENDS IN ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION
"I enjoyed this book very much. It is beautifully written and generally well presented. The book will be a standard text for years to come and I cannot see how serious students of oceanography could do without it."
--Dave Raffaelli in JOURNAL OF ANIMAL ECOLOGY
