With its emphasis on evolutionary, ecological, an d biosynthetic considerations, it sets a foundation for the chapters t hat follow. The second section takes an organismal approach to underst anding the role of secondary metabolites in mediating trophic interrel ationships. Section three reviews cellular and physiological aspects o f marine chemical ecology. The final section discusses practical appli cations. Fully detailed with figures, tables, and chemical structural diagrams, the books coverage spans aspects of marine ecology from mo lecular to community levels, bridging diverse disciplines. Written by an international panel, Marine Chemical Ecology provides a conceptual synthesis and overview of the discipline. You get an integrated perspe ctive of the current state of the field, and its future.
