The growth of human populations in coastal regions has already led to the increasing dependence on various marine resources, with both positive and negative impacts on human health. Beneficial features related to the life style and food supply definitely need to be balanced against the hazards, such as chemical pollutants and microbial pathogens from industry and toxic algal blooms. In this book, the experts of a wide range of disciplines and drawn from several countries in Europe and the USA, present a critical and timely review of the key aspects of the marine environment in relation to human health. Icarus Allen of the Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK, presents an overview of the whole of the subject in the first chapter and sets the scene for the more focused and specialised chapters that follow. He points to the many beneficial goods and services to mankind provided by the marine environment but also points to ways in which it poses a risk to the health of coastal populations. This overview demonstrates the need for integration of a wide range of disciplines, from marine biology and physical oceanography to the epidemiology and molecular biology, in order to better understand and be able to predict the consequences of environmental changes and exploitation of natural resources upon our coastal ecosystems and upon society, including human health...
