      A continental shelf is a portion of a continent that is submerged under an area of relatively shallow water known as a shelf sea. Much of the shelves were exposed during glacial periods and interglacial shelf surrounding an island is known as an insular shelf.. The continental margin, between the continental shelf and the abyssal plain, comprises a steep continental slope followed. VOL. 38, NO. 4 (DECEMBER ) P.

      Publication date ISBN (pbk.): (Aug.) (Canada) (Canada). The economic value of marine sediments increases daily, reflected in the text with a new emphasis on pollution, climate change, conservation, and management. This accessible textbook is suitable for both advanced undergraduate and graduate students who have had a general ecology course, but no further training in benthic ecology.

Numerous marine and terrestrial species have shifted their ranges poleward in response to warming from global climate change.
