About the Authors
  • Providing a comprehensive account of marine conservation, this book examines human use and abuse of the world's seas and oceans and their marine life, and the various approaches to management and conservation. Healthy marine ecosystems - the goods and services that they provide - are of vital importance to human wellbeing. There is a pressing need for a global synthesis of marine conservation issues and approaches. This book covers conservation issues pertinent to major groups of marine organisms, such as sharks, marine turtles, seabirds and marine mammals; key habitats, from estuaries, wetlands and coral reefs to the deep sea; and from local and regional to international initiatives in marine conservation. An ideal resource for students, researchers and conservation professionals, the book pays appropriate attention to the underlying marine biology and oceanography and how human activities impact marine ecosystems, enabling the reader to fully understand the context of conservation action and its rationale.

    • Fulfils a pressing need for a global synthesis of marine conservation
    • Takes a wider, more comprehensive view of marine conservation than most other treatments, dealing with management and conservation of the world ocean, all major habitat types from coastal to deep-sea environments and major groups of marine organisms that raise conservation concerns
    • Pays considerable attention to underlying marine ecology and oceanography, exploring how marine systems respond to human disturbance and therefore comprehensively covers contextual basis for remedial action
