By Abhijit Mitra, Sufia Zaman

The ebook provides fresh learn on marine ecology in numerous elements of the area. It goals to make clear suitable subject matters for budding marine ecologists.

The “blue soup” of Planet Earth, which includes either biotic and abiotic parts, is key to preserving the wheel of civilization operating. 4 significant surroundings carrier different types were pointed out inside of this context, specifically provisioning services akin to water, nutrients, mangrove bushes, honey, fish, wax, gasoline wooden, fodder and bioactive compounds from marine and estuarine natural world; regulating services reminiscent of the legislation of weather, coastal erosion, coral bleaching and pollutants; cultural services encompassing leisure (tourism), non secular and different non-material merits; and supporting services resembling nutrient biking and photosynthesis. those invaluable prone are received from quite a few assets that has to be conserved for the sake of humanity. This booklet offers facts for every source variety, not only within the type of an easy description, but additionally via case stories that resulted from a number of learn tasks and pilot courses performed in numerous elements of the realm. Statistical instruments have been extensively utilized to seriously research the impact of suitable hydrological parameters at the biotic neighborhood. complex learn in marine and estuarine ecology relies at the use of refined tools, sampling precision, statistical instruments, etc., that have additionally been highlighted within the e-book.

Estuaries adjacent to the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Sundarbans. The estuarine complex in this mangrove-dominated deltaic complex can be subdivided into three sectors, namely, western, central and eastern sectors (Fig. 8), each with different signatures of salinity (Fig. 9a–c). More than two decades of data (1984–2013) were compiled from the archives of the Department of Marine Science, University of Calcutta, for this study. A number of studies on different aspects of the Sundarban complex have been published over the years, which include description of the data (and methods) at different times over the past three decades (Mitra et al.

Estuaries rank first among the most productive regions of marine ecosystems as they typically contain diverse group and high biomass of benthic algae, seagrasses, salt marsh grasses and phytoplankton that support large number of fishes and birds. This is mainly because estuaries are enriched by nutrients that are contributed through land drainage. Also rivers contribute substantial load of nutrients in the estuarine system. The estuarine system possesses considerable nutrient retention capacity due to which the flora and fauna thriving within such system never faces the scarcity of nutrients.
