Recent years have seen a surge of interest in the role of protozoa in the ecology of the world's oceans. In addition to their vital role in global nutrient cycles, marine protozoa also exhibit some of the most interesting symbiotic associations presently known, ranging from parasitism to mutualism, contributing greatly to our knowledge of eukaryote evolution. Additionally, stratigraphic examination of extinct forms provides important keys to past world climate and ocean conditions, while the study of extant forms yields major insights into present-day ocean conditions and circulation patterns. This volume provides a general overview of the ecology of marine protozoa. It features contributions from eleven internationally known oceanographers and marine biologists on such important topics as protozoan growth and nutrition, physiology, feeding activities, symbiosis, taxonomy, and paleobiology. The editor has helpfully organized the text on the basis of ecological function. It is intended for use by research scientists and graduate students in the fields of marine ecology, biological oceanography, and marine biology, as well as by microbiologists, cell biologists, mathematical ecologists, paleontologists, marine geologists, and marine chemists seeking an update on the field or who are considering work in this area.
