Chemical Biomarkers in Aquatic Ecosystems

Thomas S. Bianchi and Elizabeth A. Canuel


This textbook provides a unique and thorough look at the application of chemical biomarkers to aquatic ecosystems. Defining a chemical biomarker as a compound that can be linked to particular sources of organic matter identified in the sediment record, the book indicates that the application of these biomarkers for an understanding of aquatic ecosystems consists of a biogeochemical approach that has been quite successful but underused. This book offers a wide-ranging guide to the broad diversity of these chemical biomarkers, is the first to be structured around the compounds themselves, and ex ... More

Keywords: chemical biomarkers, aquatic ecosystems, chemical biomarker, organic matter, biogeochemistry
