Chemical Biomarkers in Aquatic Ecosystems by Thomas S. Bianchi,Elizabeth A. Canuel

By Thomas S. Bianchi,Elizabeth A. Canuel

This textbook offers a special and thorough examine the appliance of chemical biomarkers to aquatic ecosystems. Defining a chemical biomarker as a compound that may be associated with specific resources of natural topic pointed out within the sediment list, the publication exhibits that the applying of those biomarkers for an figuring out of aquatic ecosystems comprises a biogeochemical method that has been really profitable yet underused. This ebook bargains a wide-ranging advisor to the wide range of those chemical biomarkers, is the 1st to be established round the compounds themselves, and examines them in a hooked up and finished way.

This well timed booklet is suitable for complex undergraduate and graduate scholars looking education during this sector; researchers in biochemistry, natural geochemistry, and biogeochemistry; researchers engaged on points of natural biking in aquatic ecosystems; and paleoceanographers, petroleum geologists, and ecologists.

  • Provides a consultant to the large range of chemical biomarkers in aquatic environments
  • The first textbook to be dependent round the compounds themselves
  • Describes the constitution, biochemical synthesis, research, and reactivity of every classification of biomarkers
  • Offers a range of proper functions to aquatic platforms, together with lakes, rivers, estuaries, oceans, and paleoenvironments
  • Demonstrates the software of utilizing natural molecules as tracers of techniques taking place in aquatic ecosystems, either smooth and ancient
