Summary Biofouling Methods provides a "cook book" forboth established workers and those new to the field. The methodsincluded in this important new book range from tried and testedtechniques to those at the cutting edge, encompassing the fulldiversity of this multidisciplinary field. The book covers methods for microbial and macrofouling, coatingsand biocides, and ranges from methods for fundamental studies tomethods relevant for industrial applications. There is an emphasison answering questions and each chapter provides technical methodsand problem-solving hints and tips. Bringing together a wealth of international contributions andedited by three internationally known and respected experts in thesubject Biofouling Methods is the essential methodologyreference in the field for all those working in the antifoulingindustry including those involved in formulation of antifoulingproducts such as paints and other coatings. Aquatic biologists, ecologists, environmental scientists and lawyers, marine engineers, aquaculture personnel, chemists, and medical researchers will allfind much of interest within this book. All universities andresearch establishments where these subjects are studied and taughtshould have copies of this important work on their shelves
