Ecology and Biodiversity of Benthos provides insight into the characteristic features of marine and estuarine benthos, which play an important role in coastal ecosystem functioning, as they are at the primary level of the food chain. This book provides the latest information on multidisciplinary reflections by various researchers studying the benthic community. Through the chapters, ecosystem services are explored as a way to share approaches and scientific methods to achieve knowledge-based sustainable planning and management of benthic ecosystems. Ecology and Biodiversity of Benthos provides a helpful guide for anyone working on marine and estuarine environments, and for those who need an introduction to benthic ecology. The book has a wide range of scientific coverage since it caters primarily to the requirement of marine ecologists, marine benthologists, EIA experts, aquatic researchers, scientists, teachers and research scholars. In addition to this, it also serves as a reference for postgraduate/undergraduate students studying aquatic ecosystems. Policy makers can make use of the book to formulate laws and legislations. Covering all beach types of temperate and tropical countries and addressing issues from the behavioral and physiological adaptations of the biota to explore the effects of pollution and the impact of anthropogenic activities, this book is a standard reference for those interested in sandy shore study, management and preservation. Includes analytical methods and detailed statistical interpretation for qualitative and quantitative analyses of marine and estuarine benthic community structure Presents figures, schematic diagrams and photographs related to benthic diversity of coastal ecosystem to aid in understanding protocols for assessment of the benthic community structure and function Includes case studies throughout each chapter to increase understanding of benthic communities

Meiofauna Biodiversity and Ecology

Sedimentary habitats cover the vast majority of the ocean floor and constitute the largest ecosystem on Earth. These systems supply fundamental services to human beings, such as food production and nutrient recycling. It is well known that meiofauna are an abundant and ubiquitous component of sediments, even though their biodiversity

Methods for the Study of Deep Sea Sediments  Their Functioning and Biodiversity

For years scientists viewed the deep sea as calm, quiet, and undisturbed, with marine species existing in an ecologically stable and uniform environment. Recent discoveries have completely transformed that understanding and the deep sea is recognized as a complicated and dynamic environment with a rich diversity of marine species. Carefully

Marine Animal Forests

During the last decades there has been an increasing evidence of drastic changes in marine ecosystems due to human-induced impacts, especially on benthic ecosystems. The so called “animal forests” are currently showing a dramatic loss of biomass and biodiversity all over the world. These communities are dominated by sessile suspension
