Spans the gulf separating the more specialized disciplines of science—including seawater chemistry, engineering, and physiology—and aquariology. Deals with the maintenance of aquatic animals and plants in a closed-system, i.e., a system in which the water is filtered and otherwise treated, and then reused. Among the topics discussed in detail: temperature control; aeration; buffering; bacteriological filtration; the workings of ultraviolet sterilizers and ozonators; physical adsorption methods; techniques for processing large volumes of influent seawater; and the origins and physiological effects of stress. Includes the most complete bibliography of aquarium literature assembled to date.
