“In the second edition of Marine Community Ecology and Conservation, Bertness and co-editors provide an update of the dominant elements of marine community ecology as well as the now maturing science of our generation: conservation. The editors state that the book is intended to fill intellectual gaps and update readers on new developments in applied ecology in the oceans. The book targets upper-level undergraduate to graduate level users. We feel that the book achieves this goal and is a very useful resource for graduate-level readers.”
—Anna Shaffer, Marine Ecology
“Overall, I recommend this new, thoughtfully conceived compendium of essays on marine community ecology for its intended audiences. It achieves broad coverage, comprehensive insights, and novel visions.”
—Charles H. Peterson, The Quarterly Review of Biology
“Marine Community Ecology and Conservation is a rich source of information suitable for advanced undergraduates to advanced professionals in marine ecology and conservation. … having taught marine biology, ecology, and conservation courses for more than 30 years, I recommend this book without reservation.”
—Jeanine L. Olsen, Restoration Ecology
"I've been teaching marine biology for over 20 years. … A careful review of currently available marine biology textbooks revealed that the vast majority of them are written for either non-major general ed classes or for lower-division classes for majors. They do a good job for what they are designed to do, but I need a different kind of textbook for the class I teach—it's an upper-division course in marine biology, focusing primarily on community ecology. … I had just about reached the conclusion that I needed to start generating my own sets of readings for my students when I came across … Marine Community Ecology and Conservation. … I finally found the marine biology textbook I've been looking for!"
