Summary: It is proposed to prepare a second edition of the Wiley-Blackwell textbook, Biological Oceanography by Charles B. Miller of Oregon State University. The new version will be coauthored by Dr. Patricia A. Wheeler, also at Oregon State University. She will concentrate on phytoplankton biology and ecology, marine microbiology and will contribute to chapters on pelagic
ecosystem cycles, that is the spring bloom chapter (currently chapter 1) and the redescription of oceanic biomes (chapter 11). She will review and comment on all of the rest. Dr. Miller will concentrate on the remaining chapters and contribute to revision of 1 and 11, reviewing Dr. Wheeler's chapters in return. Our target date for manuscript completion is spring, 2010. Scientific developments through the end of 2009 will be available for inclusion. The current edition is widely accepted for its intended purpose - support for basic courses in biological oceanography at the graduate level. We are frequently told by colleagues that mastering the book end-to-end is basic training for doctoral candidacy examinations in biological oceanography. Thus, maintenance of the content so that it reflects recent progress will be a good service to our field. The new book will have the same general content and outlook as the original. We will again focus on an audience of new graduate students in oceanography, readers well trained in one or several basic sciences with reasonably strong mathematical skills....show more
