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

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

This is the 1st ever e-book committed totally to the chemical ecology of algae. Algae from either marine and freshwater habitats are lined, as are macroalgae (seaweeds) and microalgae (including phytoplankton). whereas its major emphasis is at the ecological instead of chemical points of the sector, the ebook additionally incorporates a specific introductory bankruptcy meant as a primer on algal ordinary items chemistry for ecologists. It elucidates the jobs of chemical defenses in quite a few areas and habitats, of DMSP, oxidative burst responses, and herbivore offense. subject matters similar to algal sensory chemical ecology and defenses opposed to ultraviolet radiation also are taken care of, and an creation to the chemical ecology of phytoplankton is provided.

Focusing on fresh advances and likewise on issues quite worthy for undergraduate and graduate point classes, Algal Chemical Ecology is designed for learn biologists operating within the box in addition to marine ecologists and algal biologists looking an introductory guide.
