9781405193474: Marine Conservation: Science, Policy, and Management

Providing a guide for marine conservation practice, Marine Conservation takes a whole-systems approach, covering major advances in marine ecosystem understanding. Its premise is that conservation must be informed by the natural histories of organisms together with the hierarchy of scale-related linkages and ecosystem processes. The authors introduce a broad range of overlapping issues and the conservation mechanisms that have been devised to achieve marine conservation goals. The book provides students and conservation practitioners with a framework for thoughtful, critical thinking in order to incite innovation in the 21st century.

"Marine Conservation presents a scholarly but eminently readable case for the necessity of a systems approach to conserving the oceans, combining superb introductions to the science, law and policy frameworks with carefully chosen case studies. This superb volume is a must for anyone interested in marine conservation, from students and practitioners to lay readers and policy-makers."
—Simon Levin, George M. Moffett Professor of Biology, Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University

Review:

“Marine Conservationis a valuable contribution to the conservation literature. The authors successfully argue that a holistic conceptual understanding of social, legal, and political issues, as well as science, is necessary for successful management of marine and coastal resources. During a period in history when issues such as climate change, overfishing, and marine pollution are becoming substantial public concerns, this volume provides a very accessible summary of the current state of marine conservation issues.”  (The Quarterly Review of Biology, 1 October 2015)

“This is critical reading for anyone interested in the marine environment.  Summing Up: Essential.  All library collections.”   (Choice, 1 October 2014)

“This thorough, accessible, scholarly and lavishly illustrated text book with diverse contributions from many experienced scientists and practitioners will provide a solid underpinning for future careers in conservation as well as informing the public, holding in turn the possibility of future success in living sustainably with the marine environment.”  (The News Journal of the International Society for Reef Studies, 1 August 2014)

“This is critical reading for anyone interested in the marine environment. Summing up: Essential. All library collections."—CHOICE, G. C. Jensen, University of Washington
