Marine Conservation Ecology (Earthscan Oceans) Paperback – Illustrated, 18 April 2011
by John Roff (Author), Mark Zacharias (Author)

This major textbook provides a broad coverage of the ecological foundations of marine conservation, including the rationale, importance and practicalities of various approaches to marine conservation and management. The scope of the book encompasses an understanding of the elements of marine biodiversity - from global to local levels - threats to marine biodiversity, and the structure and function of marine environments as related to conservation issues.

The authors describe the potential approaches, initiatives and various options for conservation, from the genetic to the species, community and ecosystem levels in marine environments. They explore methods for identifying the units of conservation, and the development of defensible frameworks for marine conservation. They describe planning of ecologically integrated conservation strategies, including decision-making on size, boundaries, numbers and connectivity of protected area networks. The book also addresses relationships between fisheries and biodiversity, novel methods for conservation planning in the coastal zone and the evaluation of conservation initiatives.

Book is in very good condition with no creasing to the spine. Very useful book if studying about marine conservation. I used it for my degree studies and was very helpful for a unit on marine conservation approaches.

Feel free to ask questions. Can post but buyer would need to pay postage.
