  • Oceanography is a very complex science. Its field study, the knowledge of the oceans and the seas and their physical and biological characteristics, is fundamental to comprehend many oceanographic and ecological aspects that directly influence the human life and the planet health. From micro-scale, like coastal processes, to macro-scale, like Global Change, the oceans, the seas and the marine life, play the main role to maintain the earth equilibrium, both from a physical and a chemical point of view (e.g. carbon cycle and water masses dynamic)....

  • The forty-fourth volume of this series contains eight reviews written by an international array of authors that, as usual, range widely in subject and taxonomic and geographic coverage. The editors welcome suggestions from potential authors for topics they consider could form the basis of future appropriate contributions. Because an annual publication schedule necessarily places constraints on the timetable for submission, evaluation and acceptance of manuscripts, potential contributors are advised to contact the editors at an early stage of preparation.

  • England’s fisheries in 1871, Congress created the U.S. Commission of Fish and Fisheries (Hobart 1995). The first appointed Commissioner, Spencer Baird, initiated marine ecological studies as one of his first priorities. According to Baird, our understanding of fish “... would not be complete without a thorough knowledge of their associates in the sea, especially of such as prey upon them or constitute their food....” He understood that the presence or absence of fish was related not only to removal by fishing, but also to the dynamics of physical and chemical oceanography.
