Description

With its integral treatment of ecosystem and resource management, this is the only overview of the field to address current thinking and future trends. All contributions have been written with the novice in mind, explaining the basics and highlighting recent developments and achievements. Unmatched in scope, this two-volume reference covers both traditional and well-established areas of marine biotechnology, such as biomass production, alongside such novel ones as biofuels, biological protection of structures and bioinspired materials. In so doing, it ties together information usually only found in widely dispersed sources to assemble a grand unified view of the current state of and prospects for this multi-faceted discipline. The combination of the breadth of topics and the focus on modern ideas make this introductory book especially suitable for teaching purposes and for guiding newcomers to the many possibilities offered by this booming field.

Author Biography

Stephane La Barre is a Senior Research Scientist retired from the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. He obtained his MSc. degree from Auckland University, New Zealand, and his PhD from James Cook University (Townsville, Australia), before entering CNRS in 1984. His multi-disciplinary career includes marine chemical ecology, natural products chemistry of terrestrial and marine organisms and polymer chemistry. Stephane was coordinator of the research cluster BioChiMar (Marine Biodiversity and Chemodiversity), and is currently developing research on new analytical tools to evaluate and predict environmental changes on coral reef diversity, both biological and chemical. Stephen S. Bates is a Scientist Emeritus with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). He obtained his MSc. Degree in Marine Biology from the City College of New York, and his PhD in Biological Oceanography from Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada). He has held post-doctoral positions at the University of Quebec (INRS-Eau), the Bedford Institute of Oceanography (Dartmouth, NS), and the National Research Council (Halifax, NS). His research has centered on the physiological ecology of marine phytoplankton, with special interests in methods for assessing their growth and physiology. At DFO, his specialty has been the physiological ecology of harmful algal blooms, especially those diatom blooms that produce the neurotoxin, domoic acid, which causes amnesic shellfish poisoning.
