Gibson (Scottish Association for Marine Science; Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratory, Oban, Scotland) and fellow Scottish marine scientists introduce eight reviews by international authors on the latest information on topics ranging widely in subject and geographical and taxonomic coverage. The volume begins with an in-depth review of validation efforts for ecological and biogeochemical models of the greater North Sea, with appended details on available datasets. A couple of papers synthesize what is known about algae communities and mollusks. Others treat trends being exacerbated by human activity: the potential toxic effects of increasing manganese levels on crustaceans, and the implications of climate change for marine mammals. Figures include possible scenarios. A correction is given for an article in volume 43.
