Ecosystems of the benthic environment are a sensitive index to ecological change, and as such demand long-term and effective monitoring. Methods for the Study of Marine Benthos provides comprehensive information on the tools and techniques available to those working in areas where the declining health of the sea, depletion of marine resources and the biodiversity of marine life are major concerns.


In response to the need for increasingly detailed information on bottom-living communities, this fully revised new edition offers:



  • Contributions from a broad range of internationally recognised experts

  • New information for those compiling environmental impact statements, pollution assessments and working with eco-system management

  • Two separate chapters on Imaging Techniques and Diving Systems


A vital tool for all marine and environmental scientists, ecologists, fisheries workers and oceanographers, libraries in all universities and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught will find this book a valuable addition to their shelves.
