Coastal and Estuarine Studies 35
The volume presents an up-to-date account of the phytoplankton blooms which have recently occurred on a world-wide basis, with the emphasis on the new "brown tides" along the coasts of several northeastern American states. The individual chapters detail the known causes of these blooms as well as the impacts on important fisheries and other components of the ecosystem such as other plankton and eelgrass meadows. Environmental management concerns, strategies and programmes are also presented.
