Contents: Beaches and tidal flats -- Mangroves and salt marshes -- Seaweed and seagrass ecosystems -- Coral reefs -- The coastal ocean I: the coastal zone -- The coastal ocean II: the shelf proper and shelf ledge. || "Coastal Ecosystem Processes, written by the renowned marine scientist Daniel Alongi, describes how pelagic and benthic food webs, from beaches and tidal flats to the continental edge, process energy and matter. This volume focuses on recent advances and new developments on how food webs are closely intertwined with the geology, chemistry, and physics of coastal seas. Dr. Alongi presents a process-functional approach as a way of understanding how the energetics of coastal ecosystems rely not only on exchanges within and between food chains, but how such functions are influenced by terrigenous and atmospheric processes." || Coastal ecology.
