Ecology of Australian Temperate Reefs provides the present country of data of the ecology of vital components of southern Australian sub-tidal reef wildlife, and the underlying ecological rules.
Preliminary chapters describe the geological foundation, oceanography and biogeography of southern Australia, together with the transitional temperate areas towards the Abrolhos Islands within the west and to Sydney within the east. The ebook then explains the beginning and evolution of the wildlife at geological time scales as Australia separated from Antarctica; the oceanography of the zone, together with valuable currents, and interactions with on-shelf waters; and the ecology of specific species or species teams at diverse trophic degrees, beginning with algae, then the ecological ideas on which groups are organised. eventually, conservation and administration concerns are discussed.
Ecology of Australian Temperate Reefs is easily illustrated with line drawings, figures and color photos displaying the numerous species coated, and should be a far valued reference for biologists, undergraduates, and people and anxious with reef lifestyles and its traditional history.
