9780521561730: Monitoring in Coastal Environments Using Foraminifera and Thecamoebian Indicators

Here is the first comprehensive book to describe specific environmental applications of foraminifera and thecamoebians. These organisms permit the biological characterization of a variety of freshwater and coastal marine environments and react quickly to environmental stress, natural or anthropogenic. Their small size and hard shells lead to preservation in large numbers in core samples, allowing their use as proxies to reconstruct past environmental conditions. The book introduces the topic to nonspecialists and then goes on to give detailed descriptions of the methods and techniques. Resource managers and consultants in the public and private sectors who routinely work on coastal environmental problems will find this book invaluable.

Book Description:

The first comprehensive book to describe specific environmental applications of foraminifera and thecamoebians, which permit the biological characterization of a variety of freshwater and coastal marine environments; they react quickly to environmental stress, natural or anthropogenic. Their small size and hard shells lead to preservation in large numbers in core samples which means that they can be used as proxies to reconstruct past environmental conditions. The main audience will be researchers and consultants but it will also form a supplementary text for students in environmental monitoring and ecological baseline studies.

Review:

"...the great strength of the book is that it demonstrates, to a wider audience, that microfossil data can provide environmental consultants and resource managers with cost-effective and, at the same time, crucial environmental background (long-term) information, which they cannot obtain by other means!" Geology Magazine

"The authors have contributed significantly to this body of literature... this book provides a valuable overview... this reference should help focus attention on the applicaton of Foraminifera and Thecamoebians to environmental problems and highlight potential lines of inquiry." Susan T. Goldstein, Quareterly Review of Biology

"This book is a useful overview of the application of foraminiferal and thecamoebian analysis to environmental monitoring in coastal environments. I have not come across a comparable book, so this really fills an unoccupied niche! The authors have successfully minimized the use of micropaleontological jargon while stressing the potential uses of these microfossils as environmental proxies...The book is richly illustrated..." Ecoscience
