"Marine Pollution is a great tutorial as well as a great source for the general public." -- Atlantic Estuarine Research Society (AESR) News "Given the coverage of marine pollution related to oil spills, this book is timely and pertinent. ... It is a one-stop-shop for interested laypeople; it is also suitable for policy makers and students. Recommended." --Choice "As a researcher I found this book to be very useful. Every marine scientist is inescapably confronted with marine pollution, but only a few specialists can maintain an overview of the full range of threats. I found the best use of the book to be to work from its index: pick a topic, find the page(s) and be up to speed in seconds" - Michael Stachowitsch, Department of Limnology and Bio-Oceanography, University of Vienna,
