9780198540243: The Biology of Pelagic Tunicates

Pelagic Tunicates play an important role in the sea as filter feeding animals of the macroplankton in geochemical cycling. This is the first book in fifty years to provide a full account of all the Tunicate groups. It should therefore be of enormous value to plankton workers, containing keys to aid identification. For the aid of researchers, the authors have highlighted areas where further work is needed.

Quentin Bone is at Marine Laboratory, Plymouth.

Review:


"Chapters by various authorities provide a modern account of the biology of pelagic tunicates, an often-neglected yet fascinating group of marine organisms ... [the book] includes much new and previously-unpublished information."--Northeastern Naturalist

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1998. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Pelagic tunicates are fascinating for their beauty, remarkable in most cases for their curious and even bizarre life cycles, and often notable for extraordinarily rapid growth. Furthermore, in recent years their major importance in the economy of the sea has been recognized. Although the now outdated encyclopaedic texts of the 1930s dealt with pelagic tunicates, the results of much subsequent physiological and ecological work have only appeared in scattered articles. This book is unique in giving a modern account of the biology of pelagic tunicates, with much new and unpublished information. Different chapters treat such topics as the ecological impact of salp blooms, locomotion by jet propulsion, the affinities of different groups, and the abundance and distribution of each group. Updated classification and identification keys to every pelagic tunicate now known are included. The Biology of Pelagic Tunicates will be useful to all plankton workers, and may perhaps stimulate ecologists, physiologists, and geneticists to begin work on a somewhat neglected group of animals that offer some unusual advantages for different kinds of study.
