The publication investigates the biogeochemical and ecological responses to nutrient enrichment and different pollution in lagoonal estuaries and compares them to these in different estuarine varieties. With editors one of the so much famous overseas students in coastal ecology and participants who're world-class of their fields, the chapters during this quantity symbolize a wide range of experiences on usual and anthropogenic drivers of swap in coastal lagoons positioned in numerous areas of the realm. even if an important variety of magazine articles at the topic are available within the literature, this publication offers a single-source reference for coastal lagoons in the area of the worldwide surroundings.
