This landmark publication takes the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of the seminal paper by the Danish scientist, Einer Steemann Nielsen, as an occasion to guage the occasion, present state and approach ahead for crucial parts in freshwater and marine plankton productiveness. Each chapter of this essential work has been written by internationally-acknowledged specialists in the subject, and the whole has been rigorously drawn collectively and edited to supply a book that is an essential software and reference for all aquatic scientists.
The book takes ascending temporal and spatial measurement scale as its framework – overlaying molecular to geological scales. Chapters embrace evaluations of physiology and biochemistry, measurement of phytoplankton productiveness, the supply and uptake of nutritional vitamins, variability in processes and manufacturing, the evolution of the carbon cycle, and ecosystems. The subject is about in context with a chapter masking the work of Steemann Nielsen, whose work impressed the ultimate 50 years of aquatic productiveness analysis. Historic parts are talked about together with thought-scary assessments of current technological approaches and the place future evaluation emphasis have to be focussed.
Phytoplankton Productiveness provides, in one book, vanguard critiques and key particulars on the subject, making it an necessary information provide for marine and freshwater biologists, oceanographers, ecologists, environmental scientists and plant scientists. Copies additionally must be obtainable in libraries of any evaluation establishment and school as a reference for school youngsters, wherever these subjects are studied and taught.
