This volume is the culmination of an effort which began modestly, developed ambitiously, and became, ultimately, a comprehensive and authoritative text. It comprises, on the one hand, a record of the Workshop on Preservation of Wood in the Marine environment, arranged by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and development (OECD), and held at the Portsmouth College of Technology, Portsmouth, England, 1968. It represents, on the other hand, an up to date account of developments in the biology of marine wood deterioration and fouling covering. Methods of identification of marine borers and fungi; Identification of wood-boring crustaceans; Isolation and identification of filamentous marine fungi; Primary fouling of bacteria; Algae as fouling organisms; Bryozoa (Polyzoa) and marine fouling; A guide to the identification of hydroids; Annelids as fouling organisms; Ascidians as fouling organisms; Barnacles and fouling; The biology of marine borers and fungi; the Ecology and rotting ability of marine fungi; Biology of marine wood boring molluscs; On the biology, physiology and ecology of marine wood-boring crustaceans; Marine Borers and fungi; Preservation and durability of wood and the natural resistance of tropical timbers to attack by marine wood-destroying organisms.
