This book breaks new ground with the integration of geography, oceanography, plankton and benthic biology, as well as fish, to present a comprehensive account of the ecology of the tropical ocean. Proceeding from a description of the geomorphology, sediments, and vegetation of tropical continental shelves and the oceanography of tropical regions, the authors describe the benthos, plankton, and fish communities of tropical seas. An examination of the production of plant and animal life in tropical oceans is presented together with the numerical population biology of fish and invertebrates.

An excellent discussion of tropical fisheries ecology....The book should become an important reference for students of tropical fisheries, scientists interested in the literature on this diverse topic, and any fisheries scientist interested in seeing Pauly's theory described in some detail.
Ecology of Tropical Oceans is unique, stimulating and provocative. ...a major contribution to tropical marine science...
