The biological composition and richness of most of the Earth's major ecosystems are being dramatically and irreversibly transformed by anthropogenic activity. Yet, despite the vast areal extent of our oceans, the mainstay of research to-date in the biodiversity-ecosystem functioning arena has been weighted towards ecological observations and experimentation in terrestrial plant and soil systems. This book provides a framework for extending these concepts to a variety of marine systems. Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning is the first book to address the latest advances in biodiversity-function science using marine examples. It brings together contributions from the leading scientists in the field to provide an in-depth evaluation of the science, before offering a perspective on future research directions for some of the most pressing environmental issues facing society today and in the future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I will highly recommend this book in its entirety to students, perticularly at postgraduate level, as well as researchers and practitioners with an interest and background in the field.
This book covers all you ever needed and/or wanted to know about biodiversity, and more specifically about the relationship between diversity and how the ecosystem functions in the marine environment.
