Recent Advances in the Chemistry and Biology of Sea Water

Abstract

THERE can be few marine biologists who do not I owe a great deal to Dr. Harvey's earlier book, “Biological Chemistry and Physics of Sea Water”. Its appearance followed closely upon fundamental researches into the relations between nutrient salts and marine diatoms. Yet, although these permitted an insight into the basis of life in the sea which would have been impossible a few years earlier, they also invited questions (seldom on mere details), many of which were to be speedily asked although more slowly answered. Dr. Harvey's new book reviews some of the knowledge so gained.
