About the Authors
  • An international research project known as Biological Investigations of Marine Antarctic Systems and Stocks or BIOMASS was a unique, 15-year, international research program established to investigate the ecology of the Southern Ocean. This volume summarizes the results of this monumental research effort and provides a succinct, state-of-the-art account of the ecology of the Southern Ocean, covering the physical marine environment, marine stocks (phytoplankton, zooplankton, krill, fish, and birds), marine systems, and future research endeavors.

    • Summarises the findings of a unique, 15-year, international marine research programme
    • Required reading for conservationists looking for the facts about the ecology of the Antarctic marine environment

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...relevant questions are considered and put into perspective, including how the top carnivores fit into the food web of the southern ocean, to what extent the decline of the baleen whales because of overharvesting relates to apparent increases in populations of other species of whales, seals, and sea birds, and the possible importance of El Niño to reproductive processes...a valuable reference for anyone concerned with the ecology of marine mammals in the southern ocean." Ian Stirling, Marine Mammal Science

    "All chapters are well-written....Anarctic researchers are likely to find most of the review articles of value, and ecologists are likely to be interested in the problems of amassing and interpreting the data required for resource management decisions at the ecosystem level....Overall, Southern Ocean Ecology reflects pride in a major program successfully completed, tempered by the awareness of shortcomings, and contributes to a better understanding of the organisms of one of the more challenging marine environments to study." Marcia M. Gowing, BioScience

    "...a valuable reference for anyone involved in Southern Ocean research. Moreover, the book is valuable to any researcher in that it provides an honest evaluation of a multidisciplinary, multinational oceanographic research program." Eileen E. Hofmann, Arctic and Alpine Research

    "...a fitting tribute to the success of the BIOMASS program and the international community working together in Antarctica and elsewhere around the world." Marine Technology Society Journal
