The classic introduction to estuarine ecology, completely revised and updated. Estuaries are among the most biologically productive ecosystems on the planet―critical to the life cycles of fish, other aquatic animals, and the creatures that feed on them. Estuarine Ecology, Second Edition covers the physical and chemical aspects of estuaries, 5/5(7). This chapter contains sections titled: Background, Theory, and Issues. Definitions, Terms, and Objectives. Five Views of a Generalized Estuary. Estuarine Habitat Types. Estuaries and Estuarine Ecosystems in a Geological Context. High Productivity: An Estuarine Focal Point. Human Impacts and Management of Estuarine by: “Coastal wetlands such as mangroves, coral reefs, and seagrasses contain some of the most productive communities in the world.” “It is well established that coastal ecosystems such as mangroves, coral reefs, tidal flats, and estuaries are experiencing degradation and loss.” (MEA ) Coastal Ecology and Management: Coastal Ecosystems. Introduction to Ecology I. This Introductory Ecology Module explains the hierarchical structure of ecology-species, populations, communities, and ecosystems. Each lecture will focus on a key ecological principle then provide applied examples to further demonstrate the concept. Author(s): Dr. .
