Marine Organic Matter: Biomarkers, Isotopes and DNA: The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry, cartea 2 / 2N

Editat de J. K. Volkman
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 9 feb 2006
The oceans contain a great biodiversity of marine organisms. They include a rich variety of unusual genes and biochemistries and hence a diverse array of organic compounds ranging from colourful carotenoids and chlorophylls to lipids with structures ranging from the simple to the complex. This volume brings together ten chapters on the occurrence and identification of the lipid biomarkers and of pigments in marine waters. It describes how they can be used in conjunction with stable isotopes and molecular biology to ascertain the sources and fate of organic matter (both natural and pollutant) in the sea and underlying sediments. The authors are each experts in their field and the chapters provide both an overview of the state-of-the-art and knowledge gaps together with abundant detail to satisfy the needs of specialists and non-specialists alike.

Recenzii

From the reviews:
"This book brings together 10 chapters on the use of lipid biomarkers, pigments, isotopes, and molecular biology … . The authors are experts in their fields, and they have been able to provide an overview of the state of the art and knowledge gaps with sufficient detail to satisfy the needs of specialists and non-specialists alike. Marine chemists and biologists, physical oceanographers, and modellers will enjoy reading the book and keeping it as a reference in their work."

Caracteristici

This book brings together ten chapters on the use of lipid biomarkers, of pigments, isotopes and molecular biology to ascertain the sources and fate of organic matter (both natural and pollutant) in the sea and underlying sediments.
The authors have brought together both multidisciplinary overviews of the state-of-the-art and of knowledge gaps which need to be closed in the future
