Covering the latest research into biodiversity conservation, this book provides global perspectives on the role of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in confronting human-induced environmental disturbance.4/4(1).
Marine Protected Areas compares conventional management of marine resources with proposals to augment these management strategies with a system of protected areas.
The volume argues that implementation of MPAs should be incremental and adaptive, through the design of areas not only to conserve resources, but also to help us learn how to manage marine species more : Hardcover.
This book reviews the need for marine conservation, summarizes general measures for ocean and coastal conservation, and explains the rationale for establishing marine protected areas.
