BOOK REVIEW • Dynamics of Marine Ecosystems: Biological-Physical Interactions in the Oceans (Third Edition)

Andrew J. Pershing
First Paragraph

In 1991, Kenneth Mann and John Lazier published the first edition of Dynamics of Marine Ecosystems (DME). Subtitled “Biological-Physical Interactions in the Oceans,” DME was an ambitious attempt to describe how physical processes in the ocean structure biological communities. The newly released third edition contains significant updates to several sections. Although the book has grown somewhat, the additional material makes for a more comprehensive treatment of the field, and perhaps surprisingly, a more cohesive book.
