This landmark booklet takes the fiftieth anniversary of the book of the seminal paper by way of the Danish scientist, Einer Steemann Nielsen, as an get together to evaluate the advance, current nation and way forward for the most important points in freshwater and marine plankton productiveness. each one bankruptcy of this crucial paintings has been written by means of internationally-acknowledged specialists within the topic, and the total has been rigorously drawn jointly and edited to supply a publication that's a vital software and reference for all aquatic scientists.

The publication takes ascending temporal and spatial measurement scale as its framework - masking molecular to geological scales. Chapters contain reports of body structure and biochemistry, size of phytoplankton productiveness, the availability and uptake of food, variability in tactics and construction, the evolution of the carbon cycle, and ecosystems. the topic is decided in context with a bankruptcy overlaying the paintings of Steemann Nielsen, whose paintings encouraged the final 50 years of aquatic productiveness stories. old points are mentioned including thought-provoking checks of recent technological techniques and the place destiny learn emphasis may be focussed.

Phytoplankton Productivity presents, in a single ebook, innovative studies and key evidence at the topic, making it a necessary info resource for marine and freshwater biologists, oceanographers, ecologists, environmental scientists and plant scientists. Copies must also be to be had in libraries of any examine institution and collage as a reference for college kids, anyplace those matters are studied and taught.
