Summary:
"This book offers a mechanistic approach to the study of ocean ecology by exploring biological interactions in plankton at the individual level. The book focuses on encounter mechanisms, since the pace of life in the ocean intimately relates to the rate at which encounters happen." "Most of the book's chapters consist of a theoretical introduction followed by examples of how the theory might be applied to real-world  Read more...

Abstract:

The three main missions of any organism - growing, reproducing, and surviving - depend on encounters with food and mates, and on avoiding encounters with predators. This book offers a mechanistic  Read more...

Publisher Synopsis

"I found the ordering and summary of materials, especially those applying encounter theories directly, to be helpful in ordering my own thinking. The ideas will be broadly familiar to experts in the Read more...
