9780520247284: Monitoring Rocky Shores

Monitoring changes in the intertidal zone of rocky shores has never been more critical. This sensitive habitat at the interface of land and ocean may well be the marine equivalent of the canary in a coal mine as we advance into an era of global climate change. This handbook describes effective methods and procedures for monitoring the ecological and environmental status of these areas. Written by three collaborating authors with extensive field experience, it provides critical discussions and evaluation of the various sampling techniques and field procedures for studies of intertidal macroinvertebrates, seaweeds, and seagrasses. Rather than prescribing standard protocols or procedures, the authors break down the decision-making process into various elements so investigators can become aware of the advantages and disadvantages of choosing a particular method or approach. Chapters discuss topics such as site selection, field sampling layouts and designs, selection of sampling units, nondestructive and destructive methods of quantifying abundance, and methods for measuring age, growth rates, size, structure, and reproductive condition.

From the Inside Flap:

Intertidal ecologists have been struggling with how to adequately monitor the tremendous diversity and heterogeneity of rocky shores for decades. Finally three of the most experienced and established people in the field have done it. Monitoring Rocky Shores will serve as THE central reference guide for scientists intent on understanding the complexities of intertidal ecology.” John Pearse, coauthor of Animals Without Backbones

The incredibly high taxic, morphological, ecological, as well as biotic diversity of rocky shores makes them ideal sites for ecological studies; however this same diversity also presents innumerable challenges. Monitoring Rocky Shores is long overdue in helping investigators tackle these innumerable challenges. This book provides a broad and important introduction to the habitat, the animals, the methods, and the analyses required constructing informed hypotheses and scenarios for life on rocky shores.” David R. Lindberg, Museum of Paleontology, co-editor of Phylogeny and Evolution of the Mollusca
