Biological oceanographic processes by Timothy Richard Parsons( Book )

56 editions published between 1973 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This revised edition of a popular textbook is written for students, physical oceanographers, engineers, hydrologists, fisheries experts and a number of other professionals who require quantitative expressions of biological oceanographic phenomena. It is designed to lead the reader, step by step, through a progression from the distribution of marine organisms, to discussions on trophic relations, to a final chapter on some practical applications of biological oceanography to fisheries and pollution problems. The book covers subject matter in the pelagic and benthic environments, and is intend
Biological oceanography : an introduction by Carol M Lalli( Book )

59 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This popular undergraduate textbook offers students a firm grounding in the fundamentals of biological oceanography. As well as a clear and accessible text, learning is enhanced with numerous illustrations including a colour section, thorough chapter summaries, and questions with answers and comments at the back of the book. The comprehensive coverage of this book encompasses the properties of seawater which affect life in the ocean, classification of marine environments and organisms, phytoplankton and zooplankton, marine food webs, larger marine animals (marine mammals, seabirds and fish), life on the seafloor, and the way in which humans affect marine ecosystems. The second edition has been thoroughly updated, including much data available for the first time in a book at this level. There is also a new chapter on human impacts - from harvesting vast amounts of fish, pollution, and deliberately or accidentally transferring marine organisms to new environments. This book complements the Open University Oceanography Series, also published by Butterworth-Heinemann, and is a set text for the Open University third level course, S330.

A practical handbook of seawater analysis by J. D. H Strickland( Book )

47 editions published between 1968 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains full working instructions of certain procedures for seawater analysis that have been found to be reliable and to have adequate sensitivity & precision for most studies of marine ecology. Most of the methods described are for substances that affect or measure organic production in the sea and, in most cases, the methods can be mastered by relatively inexperienced workers in a ship's laboratory. Methods & required equipment are described for analysis of the following: salinity, dissolved oxygen, carbonate, & sulphide; inorganic micronutrients; soluble organic matter; particulate materials; and for photosynthetic rate measurements
A manual of chemical and biological methods for seawater analysis by Timothy Richard Parsons( Book )

25 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An introduction to the quantitative analysis of seawater, describing in detail biological and chemical techniques, which are considered to be amongst those most often used by biological oceanographers. The manual provides complete instructions for the addition of reagents and calculation of results with reference material for each method so that the original texts can be consulted if necessary. In general, the techniques require a minimum of prior professional training and methods needing very expensive equipment have been avoided."--[Source inconnue]

The pathogenic nature of finely particulate silica : a thesis by Timothy Richard Parsons( )

3 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Silicon is the second most abundant element in the earth's crust. Because of the solubility of silicates of alkali metals a considerable quantity of silicon is absorbed by plants and variable amounts are ingested with plants by animals. Of the amount ingested a small proportion gains an entrance into the body and is distributed in all tissues. The question which has been entertained by many workers is whether silicon is an essential element in animal metabolism. On certain theoretical grounds silicon is considered to be classified among those possibly essential (1)." --

the Preparation and Analysis of Sulphurous Acid Hydrolysates of Casein. by Timothy Richard Parsons( )

2 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Proteins may be hydrolyzed by the use of acids, bases and enzymes. The strong mineral acids are effective hydrolytic agents and under suitable conditions will lead to complete protein hydralysis. However, under conditions that will give complete hydrolysis of the protein, the amino acid tryptophane is destroyed and humin formed. Cystine and other amino acids are partially destroyed by acid hydrolysis." --
