Evolution of Environment and Ecosystem in the Bohai Sea and Coast
This book covers the latest research progress in the hydrology, chemistry, and biology of the Bohai Sea, including 1) the water exchange flux of the Bohai Strait, 2) the flux of biogenic elements and pollutants from the surrounding rivers to the Bohai Sea, and the deposition flux of atmospheric particulate matter into the Bohai Sea, 3) the isotopic and environmental magnetic methods for the source identification of the inputs in the Bohai Sea from both terrestrial and the open sea, 4) the community structure and the spatio-temporal distribution of microbes, picoplankton and phytoplankton in the Bohai Sea and the strait, and 5) the impacts of the Yellow Sea warm current and the nutrients on the variation of the ecology and environment of the Bohai Sea. Results from this book will provide basic data and scientific basis for understanding the ecological and environmental evolution, utilization, protection and management of the semi-enclosed shallow sea under the dual influence of high-intensity human activities and the global climate change.
The Diatom and Dinoflagellate in the Sediment of the Bohai Sea and the Yellow Sea
This book introduces the biodiversity, spatial distribution characteristics of diatoms and dinoflagellate cysts in the surface sediments of the Bohai Sea and the Yellow Sea, and their indications to the environment. The book is divided into three chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the extraction methods and data analysis of sedimentary diatoms and dinoflagellate cysts. Chapter 2 describes the morphological characteristics of common diatoms and dinoflagellate cysts, in the surface sediments of the Bohai Sea and the Yellow Sea. Chapter 3 illustrates the spatial distribution characteristics of diatoms and dinoflagellates in the Bohai Sea and the Yellow Sea and their indications to the environment.
Both books are available in Chinese only.
