Editorial Reviews

Review

Rex and Etter offer a truly novel synthesis of an exciting and dynamic subject. They have done an exceptional job of compiling new data that captures the history, idea development, and current conceptual understanding of the abundance and diversity of the deep sea. (Lisa A. Levin, Scripps Institution of Oceanography)

Deep-sea ecology is experiencing an international resurgence. This book should become a landmark. (Robert S. Carney, Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences, Louisiana State University)

Species diversity is considered briefly in the few books that address deep-sea biology but there is nothing to compare with the depth, insight and clarity of Deep-Sea Biodiversity. This book fills an important niche in deep-sea ecology. (Paul A. Tyler, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton)

Rex and Etter's great achievement will be an essential volume on any marine scientist's bookshelf. It relates the great discovery of biodiversity patterns in the deep-sea floor to the physical and biological dynamics of the global ocean and its regions, and provides an important evolutionary and geological history perspective on the assembly of present day patterns of biodiversity. (Jeffrey Levinton, Department of Ecology and Evolution, Stony Brook University)
