This important and exciting title represents the first authoritative volume focussed on pelagic (open ocean) sharks as a group. Virtually every pelagic shark expert in the world has contributed to this landmark publication which includes the latest data and knowledge on pelagic shark biology, fisheries, management, and conservation. Pelagic sharks face unprecedented levels of exploitation in all the world's oceans through both direct fisheries and by-catch, and effective management for these species is contingent upon solid science and data, which this book brings together for the first time. All those involved in shark biology will need to have a copy of this book.

STUCK IN A corporate job rut and faced with an unraveling marriage at the age of thirty-six, Roz Savage sat down one night and wrote two versions of her own obituary -- the one that she wanted and the one she was heading for. They were very different. She realized that if she carried on as she was, she wasn't going to end up with the life she wanted. So she turned her back on an eleven-year career as a management consultant to reinvent herself as a woman of adventure. She invested her life's savings in an ocean rowboat and became the first solo woman ever to enter the Atlantic Rowing Race. Her 3,000-mile trial by sea became the challenge of a lifetime. Of the twenty-six crews that set out from La Gomera, six capsized or sank and didn't make it to the finish line in Antigua. There were times when she thought she had hit her absolute limit, but alone in the middle of the ocean, she had no choice but to find the strength to carry on. In Rowing the Atlantic we are brought on board when Savage's dreams of feasts are nourished by yet another freeze-dried meal. When her gloves wear through to her blistered hands. When her headlamp is the only light on a pitch-black night ocean that extends indefinitely in all directions. When, one by one, all four of her oars break. When her satellite communication fails. Stroke by stroke, Savage discovers there is so much more to life than a fancy sports car and a power-suit job. Flashing back to key moments from her life before rowing, she describes the bolt from the blue that first inspired her to row across oceans and how this crazy idea evolved from a dream into a tendinitis-inducing reality. And finally, Savage discovers in the rough waters of the Atlantic the kind of happiness we all hope to find.

Diatoms are a ubiquitous group of plankton responsible for 20-40% of oceanic primary production, and a higher fraction of organic matter export to the ocean interior. Diatoms actively transport dissolved inorganic silicon into their cells, and through the process of silicification (i.e. biogenic silica production) they build tough and intricate shells, known as frustules. With a global distribution and the ability to persist in high numerical abundances, diatoms dominate the biological cycling of Si in the oceans. The biogeochemical cycling of Si has been well studied in the coastal ocean, specifically in upwelling regions where diatoms are generally the dominant phytoplankton group. However, much less is known about the role diatoms play in the open ocean; which comprises the vast majority of the oceanic surface area. Outside of the Southern Ocean, only 11 studies (prior to 2003) directly examined surface-water Si biogeochemistry in the open ocean. Current knowledge about Si biogeochemistry in the open ocean suffers from what can only be described as gross under-sampling. This dissertation reports on the surface-water Si biogeochemistry in two open-ocean regions: the northwestern Sargasso Sea and the eastern equatorial Pacific. The three research chapters are linked by the examination of spatial or temporal variability in surface-water Si biogeochemistry. Chapters 2 and 4 examine scales of temporal variability in Si biogeochemistry in the Sargasso Sea. The results demonstrate that biogenic silica concentrations, and presumably Si biogeochemical processes, vary on daily, seasonal, multi-year (e.g. ∼3-4 years), and decadal time scales. In Chapter 3 data were gathered over a ∼2.6x10 6 km2 area (i.e. larger than the Bering Sea) in the equatorial Pacific. Within that area biogenic silica production showed little spatial or temporal variability. Additionally, the estimated contribution to new production (productivity supporting the export of organic matter to the ocean interior) by diatoms in this region was 4-10 times higher than the diatom contribution to total autotrophic biomass.
