The biodiversity of many ecosystems is under threat and although seas cover the majority of our planet's surface, far less is known about the biodiversity of marine environments than that of terrestrial systems. It is also not clear whether many of the patterns known to occur on land also occur in the sea. Until we have a firmer idea of the diversity of a wide range of marine habitats and what controls it, we have little hope of conserving biodiversity, or determining the impact of human activities such as mariculture, fishing, dumping of waste and pollution. This book brings together key studies from the deep sea and open ocean, to tropical shores and polar regions to consider how comparable the patterns and processes underlying diversity are in these different ecosystems. Marine Biodiversity will be a major resource for all those interested in biodiversity and its conservation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Marine Biodiversity will be a major resource for all those interested in biodiversity and its conservation.' Journal of the Marine Biological Association
"This is a useful gathering of well-written, nicely edited essays by (mainly British) experts to survey the many (cosmopolitan) studies on the subject...[T]his volume aptly summarizes what is known of marine biodiversity." Choice
"Marine Biodiversity: Patterns and Processes would be a welcome addition to university libraries and to professional scientists engaged in community ecology and the new domain of biodiversity." Julie Ambler, Estuaries
"Marine Biodiversity helps to redress the balance by explaining major patterns of diversity in the marine environment." Linda Medlin, Nature
"Marine Biodiversity may be useful as a reference both to ecologists and environmentalists who are looking for hard data on subjects that are often discussed too generally in disparate journals. Some of the chapters are thorough reviews and others are research papers. All are well written with adequate black-and-white illustrations." The Quarterly Review of Biology
