The Estuarine Ecosystem

Ecology, Threats, and Management

Third Edition

Donald S. McLusky and Michael Elliott

For the inhabitants of many of the world's major towns and cities, estuaries provide their first and nearest glimpse of a natural habitat. Despite the attempts of man to pollute or reclaim it, the estuarine ecosystem continues to provide a fascinating insight into a natural world where energy is transformed from sunlight into plant material and then through the steps of a food chain and is converted into a rich food supply for birds and fish.
