Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that a new chapter titled: Marine Environment
and Public Health is available.
The chapter has been published by InTech, inside the book Biodiversity
Conservation
and Utilization in a Diverse World (DOI: 10.5772/3330).

We present some results of bacteriological surveys  (Aeromonadaceae
and Vibrionacea species) that have been carried out with many specimens of
marine mammals, seabirds and sea turtles from Brazilian coast.

Brief introduction:
This book "Biodiversity Conservation and Utilization in a Diverse World"
sees
biodiversity as management and utilization of resources in satisfying human
needs in multi-sectional areas including agriculture, forestry, fisheries,
wildlife and other exhaustible and inexhaustible resources. Its value is to
fulfill actual human preferences and variability of life is measured by
amount
of genetic variation available. In viewing diversity as an ultimate moral
value, one is faced with a situation in environmental preservation in order
to
allow components of total diversity to flourish and constitute a threat to
continuous existence and decrease total diversity. The overall importance
described economic benefits from bio-diversity, though difficult to measure
and varying, but are limited on a local scale, increase on a regional or
national scale and become potentially substantial on a transnational or
global
scale.

Best regards to all,

Salvatore
