Our oceans are under attack, as our garbage, wastewater, toxic spills, influence the quality of life of their inhabitants: animals become ill, the food web is hampered, algae overrun all other forms of life. Lately, there is the growing concern about plastic patches in the sea, underwater noise and invasive species. This book on marine pollution describes these different threats to life in the oceans, as well as the relevant modern research methods. It ends with a description on international legislation preventing pollution by the maritime sector (MARPOL73/78). Meant for a student with already basic knowledge of biochemistry and physiology.
