Aquatic Ecosystems: Volume 2, Marine Ecosystems: A Comprehensive Guide to the Integrity of Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems by Nicholas Polunin



Aquatic Ecosystems Concern about future supplies of fresh water to society, to meet the full range of human needs, now comes very high on the priority list of global societal issues. An overarching issue that the book tries to address is whether global climate change is a dominant driver of change in the structure and function of natural aquatic ecosystems, or whether direct human population growth and accelerated consumption are playing an equal or greater role

This book divides the whole aquatic realm into 21 ecosystems, from those on land (both saline and fresh water) to those of the open and deep oceans. It draws on the understanding of leading ecologists to summarize the state and likely condition by the year 2025 of each of the ecosystems.

In the book, the world’s leading marine and freshwater scientists describe how direct anthropogenic effects will devastate rivers, lakes and coastal seas ‘long before climate change takes full effect’.

This concern was expressed above all in the creation of pro- tected areas, organizations and agencies focused on nature conservation. Lakes, streams and wetlands Inland aquatic ecosystems are expected to be greatly influ- enced by climate change through altered water temperatures, flow regimes and water levels (.
