Werner, Alfredo Aretxabaleta and Karen Pehrson Edwards -- Responses of marine phytoplankton populations to fluctuations in marine climate / Theodore J. Smayda ... [et al.] -- The influences of climate variability on North Atlantic zooplankton populations / Andrew J. Pershing ... [et al.] -- The responses of fish populations to ocean climate fluctuations / Geir Ottersen ... [et al.] -- Marine birds and climate fluctuation in the North Atlantic / Jo�el M. Durant ... [et al.] -- Responses of phytoplankton communities to climate variability / Andrea Belgrano ... [et al.] -- Effects of climate variability on benthic communities / Jacob Hagberg ... [et al.] -- Climatic influences on marine fish community ecology / Kyrre Lekve and Nils Chr. Stenseth -- Climate and fisheries : an insight from the Central Pacific Ocean / Patrick Lehodey -- Complexity of marine fisheries dynamics and climate interactions in the northeast Pacific Ocean / Kevin M. Bailey, Anne B. Hollowed and Warren S. Wooster -- A fresh (water) perspective on the impacts of the NAO on North Atlantic ecology / Dietmar Straile -- A freshwater perspective on climate variability and its effect on marine ecosystems / Dag O. Hessen -- Time lags in terrestrial and marine environments / Eric Post -- The impacts of ENSO on terrestrial ecosystems : a comparison with NAO / Mauricio Lima and Fabian M. Jaksic -- Afterword / Roger Harris.
Summary: Survival, growth and distribution of marine organisms are highly influenced by climate variability. Marine biodiversity is threatened by the combined forces of harvesting, pollution and climate change. In this book, contributors summarize current knowledge of how climate affects marine ecosystems, focusing on the North Atlantic.
