Contents:
Biofouling Concentration. Main Colonization Processes. Biological and Physical Mechanisms. Settlement of Larvae. Classification of Hard Surfaces. Features of adhesion, attachment, and growth of foulers. Fundamentals of Colonization Theory. Evolution of Interrelations Between Biofouling and Benthos. Physical and Chemical Methods of the Defense Against Biofouling, The Concept of Chemo-Biological Defense. The General Equation of Accumulation.
Abstract: Marine Biofouling: Colonization and Defenses is the English translation of a Russian volume by a top Russian scientist with over twenty years in the field of marine biofouling, who proposes a chemical biological approach to the protection against biofouling. This book explains how marine communities of biofouling develop and why foulers concentrate on hard substrates and provides general approaches to, and some methods for, the ecologically safe defense against marine biofouling. With all contributions by marine scientists, this volume synthesizes current knowledge on the colonization process that determines the formation of communities on hard substrata, their recruitment and development.Key Features: Provides a synthesis of current knowledge on the colonization process that determines the formation of communities on hard substrata, their recruitment and development * Reviews the main group of foulers * Proposes a novel approach to the mathematical interpretation of the colonization process * Includes a valuable chapter on shallow-water and oceanic drifts of larvae * Concludes with chapters devoted to the biological mechanisms and principles of ecologically safe defenses against biofouling.
