  • Major topics covered include phytoplankton bloom, microbial food web, marine biogeography, global climate change and an overview of fisheries oceanography.
  • Difficult concepts are explained in a straightforward manner, making this book accessible to undergraduates, graduates and researchers alike.
  • Features a chapter on important numerical models which have become indispensable in biological oceanography.

About the author (2004)

Charlie Miller has taught both undergraduate and graduate courses in biological oceanography for many years at Oregon State University. During those years, he has studied the zooplankton communities of the Oregon upwelling zone and Oregon estuaries, the pelagic ecology of the Gulf of Alaska, the life histories of planktonic copepods, and several varieties of population modeling.
