    An influential edited volume by some of the leading authorities in marine ecology exploring the physical and ecological forces that influence the assembly, structure, and dynamics of marine communities. The book covers a variety of different habitats and ecosystems as well as important conservation issues. Deposit feeders, animals that derive nutrition from organic matter in sedimentary deposits, are dominant among the inhabitants of muds and, therefore, of the benthos of much of the ocean. In this volume the critical research problems pertaining to deposit feeders are identified and promising.

    Most of the seabed throughout the world's oceans is covered with sediment. Sediments are a complex mixture of organic and inorganic materials derived from marine and terrestrial sources. A diverse array of organisms live in sediments, and by far the majority of them derive their nutrition from the organic matter present in the sedimentary deposit. Sep 01,  · Microbial Communities in Coastal Sediments: Structure and Functions presents research gained on coastal microbiology over the past two decades. The book covers the source of organic matter, which is found to design sediment microbial communities, and goes on to consider the quality of this matter with regard to degradation in coastal axendadeportiva.com Edition: 1.

    The Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology provides a forum for experimental ecological research on marine organisms in relation to their environment. Topic areas include studies that focus on biochemistry, physiology, behavior, genetics, and ecological theory. It was also suggested that marine sediments as the secondary source of arsenic may affect marine ecology. In coastal and estuarine sediments redox changes occur more often at the time of seasonal changes, predominantly in spring and autumn [8]. Marine sediments are also an important source of methylated forms of arsenic to the overlying water.

Marine Ecology is the scientific study of marine-life habitat, populations, and interactions among organisms and the surrounding environment including their abiotic (non-living physical and chemical factors that affect the ability of organisms to survive and reproduce) and biotic factors (living things or the materials that directly or indirectly affect an organism in its environment).
