Algal Chemical Ecology by J. Alan Maschek, Bill J. Baker (auth.), Dr. Charles D.

By J. Alan Maschek, Bill J. Baker (auth.), Dr. Charles D. Amsler (eds.)

This is the 1st ever booklet committed fullyyt to the chemical ecology of algae. Algae from either marine and freshwater habitats are coated, as are macroalgae (seaweeds) and microalgae (including phytoplankton). whereas its major emphasis is at the ecological instead of chemical points of the sector, the booklet additionally features a exact introductory bankruptcy meant as a primer on algal traditional items chemistry for ecologists. It elucidates the jobs of chemical defenses in a variety of areas and habitats, of DMSP, oxidative burst responses, and herbivore offense. issues akin to algal sensory chemical ecology and defenses opposed to ultraviolet radiation also are taken care of, and an advent to the chemical ecology of phytoplankton is provided.

Focusing on contemporary advances and in addition on issues fairly necessary for undergraduate and graduate point classes, Algal Chemical Ecology is designed for study biologists operating within the box in addition to marine ecologists and algal biologists looking an introductory guide.
