This title includes a number of Open Access chapters. This valuable compendium provides an overview of the variables and consequences of oceanic carbon cycling in the context of climate change. The chapters highlight the importance of marine plankton in carbon processing as well as the effects of rising CO2 and temperature in their functioning. Marine ecosystems are being increasingly threatened by growing human pressures, including climate change. Understanding the consequences that climate change may have is crucial to predict the future of our oceans. Rising temperatures and ocean acidification may profoundly alter the mode of matter and energy transformation in marine ecosystems, which could have irreversible consequences for our planet on ecological timescales. For that reason, the scientific community has engaged in the grand challenge of studying the variables and consequences of oceanic carbon cycling in the context of climate change, which has emerged as a relevant field of science. The book is broken into four sections: Understanding the Importance of Ocean Biogeochemistry Quantifying Oceanic Carbon Variables Phytoplankton and Oceanic Carbon Cycle Ocean Acidification Edited by a researcher with many years of experience and with contributions from scientists from around the world, this volume explores the most important topics on climate change and oceanic carbon cycling.

Author Biography

Dr. Isabel Ferrera holds a PhD from the Autonomous University of Barcelona since 2004. After a long postdoctoral stay in the USA, she joined the Marine Sciences Institute in Barcelona where she carries out research on the ecology of marine bacteria. In the last years she has specialized in the study of photoheterotrophic bacteria and on how their diversity and activity influence biogeochemical cycling in the ocean. She is author of more than 30 publications and has a large experience in teaching in the field of microbiology.
