Book Description :

More than 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water, making it an ideal and abundant resource for studying species diversity, faunal communities, and ecosystems. India’s massive coastline (5,044 miles) means it plays a major role in housing these faunal communities. Of the 32 animal phyla, 15 are represented in India’s marine ecosystem, covering more than 15,000 species. Marine and coastal ecosystems of India provide supporting services in the form of wide range of habitats. Major ecosystems such as estuaries, mangroves, coral reefs, lagoons, seaweeds and sea grasses serve as nurseries for both inshore and offshore fishes and others, many of which are supposed to be commercially exploited. Marine Faunal Diversity in India describes different marine faunal group ranges from sponges, corals, mollusks, crabs, fishes, reptiles, birds, marine mammals, mangrove fauna and tsunami impact on marine faunal diversity. The chapters, written by reputed experts in their respective fields, illustrate diversity and distribution of marine faunal communities. Key aspects of the ecology and conservation of this important ecosystem are also discussed. Marine Faunal Diversity in India provides marine biologists and related researchers with access to the latest research and field studies from this major region. Provides the latest field research on marine faunal diversity throughout the vast and species-rich Indian region Brings together expertise from top marine biology researchers in the country Covers a diverse array of aquatic environments, including coastal and island areas Discusses conservation ecology of marine faunal groups

Book Description :

This book provides insights into various aspects of marine faunal communities in India, which are extremely diverse due to the geomorphologic and climatic variations along the Indian coasts. Consisting of 30 chapters by experts in their respective fields, it is divided into two parts: · Part I: Tropical Marine Faunal Communities · Part II: Ecology and Conservation Part I highlights the diversity and distribution of Foraminifera; sponges associated with seagrass; Polychaeta; Opisthobranchia; oysters; copepods; horseshoe and brachyuran crabs; echinoderms; ascidians; fishes; fish parasites; and sea mammals. Topics of Part II include the status and environmental parameters of benthos; the status of coral reefs; the invasion of snowflake coral; the recovery of bleached corals; the socioeconomics and management of dugong; marine biodiversity conservation and management in India; the assessment of the marine fauna of the Indian Wildlife Protection Act; and marine biodiversity protected areas in India. This book will serve as a valuable reference work for marine scientists, as well as for environmental managers and policy makers.

Book Description :

Biodiversity and Climate Change Adaptation in Tropical Islands provides comprehensive information on climate change, biodiversity, possible impacts, adaptation measures and policy challenges to help users rehabilitate and preserve the natural resources of tropical islands. While biodiversity and climate change of tropical islands has previously received less attention, it is ironically one of the most vulnerable regions in this regard. The core content of the work derives largely from the ideas and research output from various reputed scientists and experts who have recorded climate change impacts on aquatic and coastal life in tropical regions. Contributors have direct working experience with the tribes in some of the tropical islands. All of their expertise and information is compiled and presented in the work, including coverage related to climate change. This work highlights the ever-growing need to develop and apply strategies that optimize the use of natural resources, both on land and in water and judicious use of biodiversity. It functions as a critical resource on tropical island biodiversity for researchers, academicians, practitioners and policy makers in a variety of related disciplines. Covers a huge range of biodiversity documentation, conservation measures and strategies that can be applied to various sectors, from forests to agriculture Brings together expertise from researchers in the area who have direct experience in the regions described Contains a wealth of field research related to biodiversity conservation and its applications from a variety of tropical islands

Book Description :

Marine ecosystems are diverse habitats, endowed with physical, chemical, and geographical variations in the ecosystems, where the gradation from highly productive organisms to highly specialized organisms exists. India has almost 7,517 km long coast, of which 5,423 km belongs to the peninsular India, and around 2,094 km to the Andaman, Nicobar and Lakshadweep Islands. The mainland coast of India consists of 43% sandy beaches; 11% rocky coast including cliffs; and 46% mudflats or marshy coast. This massive coastline of India supports the human population tremendously through marine resources. Nearly 250 million people live within the fringe of 50 km from the coastline of India. Hence, a vital role in India’s economic growth is played by the ecological services that the marine and coastal ecosystems provide. The MPAN (Marine Protected Area Network) in India regulates the natural marine resources to conserve the depleting biodiversity for the betterment of people that are dependent on these coastal resources. Moreover, Gujarat State is bestowed with one of the longest coastline of India (1,650 km). The Gulf of Kachchh (Gujarat) is India’s first Marine National Park (MNP) contributing to the ecological importance of the state’s coastal ecosystem; exhibiting the most vulnerable biological diversity in intertidal mudflats, gulfs, bays wetlands, mangroves, salt marshes, coral reefs, beaches, dunes, and estuaries. The book Mangroves: Structure, Functions, Ecology and Biodiversity focuses on environmental and ecological studies of Gulf of Kachchh, Western Gujarat, India, in relation to eutrophication, biotic components, structure and functions of mangroves, and biomonitoring of metals. The book covers an in-depth study of surface water and bottom sediment quality, diversity, density, abundance, commonness, rarity of shells, ecological structure and functions of mangrove environment including composition, population dynamics, community structure of floral and faunal species, phytochemical constituents of selected mangrove tree species, and biomonitoring of nutrients in Avicennia marina. The book would unquestionably be the need of an hour for mangroves managers, marine conservationists, and policy makers or decision authorities to prevent the unrestrained exploitation of marine biodiversity, destruction of potential mangrove habitats, and uncontrolled interactions of man and technology with mangrove ecosystems around the world.

Book Description :

Marine, coastal and wetland habitats are threatened, through exploitation, and also by climate change, as ocean currents change course, sea levels rise, and rainfall patterns change. This book gathers papers on the biodiversity conservation of these increasingly threatened habitats. The papers provide a snapshot of the problems they face, and offer numerous examples which render this volume valuable to educators in marine, freshwater and wetlands ecology, conservation and ecological restoration.
