Ecological processes in coastal and marine systems by Robert J Livingston( Book )

18 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is based on the proceedings of a conference held at Florida State University in April, 1978. This conference was supported by the Florida State University Graduate Research Council, the Department of Biological Science (F.S.U.), and the Center for Professional Development and Public Service. Particular recogniƯ tion should be made of the efforts of Dr. Anne Thistle in the organization of the conference and the completion of this book. Julia K. White and Sheila Marrero produced the typescript. The principal objective of the conference was to assemble a group of marine scientists from diverse disciplines to discuss the state of marine ecology with particular attention to new research directions based on previous studies. Emphasis was placed on the integration of different research approaches and on the application of established procedures to various environmental problems. An effort was made to eliminate traditional disciplinary boundaries which often hinder our understanding of marine systems. There was generally wide latitude for review and speculation concerning such topics as physico-chemical processes, productivity and trophic interactions, population distribution and community structure, and natural or anthropogenic disturbance phenomena. Throughout, the usual miniaturization of the scope of discussion was subordinate to a frank appraisal of the present status of marine research. Although many introductory ecological texts stress the soƯ called ecosystem approach, individual marine research projects seldom encompass this broad course. There is, in fact, a real need for system-wide studies at both the theoretical and applied levels

Restoration of aquatic systems by Robert J Livingston( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Restoration of Aquatic Systems makes a clear delineation between genuine restoration and public perception of restoration efforts. Written by Robert Livingston, one of the foremost international authorities on aquatic ecosystems, this work is the final volume of a trilogy derived from 70 field-years of data garnered from ten different coastal systems on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. The text provides a synthetic look at restoration efforts, emphasizing the functional basis that supports such activities, followed by a review of the evidence of recovery."--Jacket
Trophic organization in coastal systems by Robert J Livingston( Book )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Derived from research covering over 70 years of field data from coastal regions in the north-east Gulf of Mexico, this volume represents an alternative approach to coastal research. It considers nutrient loading, habitat definition, quantified collections of organisms from microbes to fishes
The Rivers of Florida by Robert J Livingston( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses basic questions concerning the ecological relationships and current conditions of the major river systems in Florida . . There have been relatively few comprehensive studies made of the rivers of Florida. There is, to be sure, voluminous information that addresses various aspects of riverine ecology. However, little such information has been collected in a way that allows even a preliminary understanding of the driving forces that determine how the diverse freshwater and associated brackish systems function. This lack of useful data is the product of a fundamental ignorance concerning the scale of endeavor, both spatially and temporally, that is needed if we are to understand and, parenthetically, manage the major drainage systems of this area of the country (Livingston, 1987). Research used to address management problems should entail a continuous series of interrelated studies, descriptive and experimental, that answer the immediate (and often less important) questions that are asked on a day-to-day basis. The research should also be designed to answer questions that have not yet been asked. In other words, ecosystem research should be organized on an appropriate scale so that system-wide processes are understood and pr
Eutrophication processes in coastal systems : origin and succession of plankton blooms and effects on secondary production in Gulf Coast estuaries by Robert J Livingston( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Derived from an research effort covering over 31 years in a series of studies of 7 major river-estuaries, Eutrophication Processes in Coastal Systems: Origin and Succession of Plankton Blooms and Effects on Secondary Production in Gulf Coast Estuaries presents a review of the nature of the eutrophication process in coastal areas along the NE Gulf of Mexico and how short-and long-term nutrient loading affects these systems."--Jacket
Climate change and coastal ecosystems : long-term effects of climate and nutrient loading on trophic organization by Robert J Livingston( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based upon a four decade longitudinal study of river-estuarine systems in the Northeast Gulf of Mexico, this book provides a detailed comparative analysis of the long-term data with specific references to similarities and differences in system response to nutrient loading (natural and anthropogenic) and long-term climatological cycles. It includes specific references to noted changes in the climate of the study regions over the four decades of field operations. The unique database will allow a totally new approach to the differentiation of anthropogenic processes relative to natural conditions in a series of river-estuarine systems."--
