This book highlights an unprecedented collaboration of environmental scientists, ecologists and physicians working together on this important new discipline, to the benefit of human health and ocean environmental integrity alike. Oceanography, toxicology, natural products chemistry, environmental microbiology, comparative animal physiology, epidemiology and public health are all long established areas of research in their own right and all contribute data and expertise to an integrated understanding of the ways in which ocean biology and chemistry affect human health for better or worse. This book introduces this topic to researchers and advanced students interested in this emerging field, enabling them to see how their research fits into the broader interactions between the aquatic environment and human health. * Color illustrations of aquatic life and oceanic phenomena such as hurricanes and algal blooms * Numerous case studies * Socio-economic and Ethical Analyses place the science in a broader context * Study questions for each chapter to assist students and instructors * Risks and remedies sections to help define course modules for instruction

He has published more than 300 research papers.Orazio Taglialatela Scafati got the Ph.D. in "Bioactive Natural Products" in 1997, under the supervision of Prof. Fattorusso. Currently, he is Associate Professor in Organic Chemistry, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Naples "Federico II".His research interests deal with isolation, structure elucidation and semisynthetic transformations of bioactive secondary metabolites from marine invertebrates and terrestrial plants. He is the author of 45 research papers and the editor of the book "Flavour and Fragrance Chemistry".
