About this book

Based on the first international conference on large marine ecosystems (LMEs) in Monaco, 1990, this volume emphasises LMEs as a unifying concept, and aims to address the advantages of a more holistic approach to the research, monitoring, and management of marine resources.


Part One: Sustainability of Large Marine Ecosystems - large marine ecosystems as global units for marine resources management - an ecological perspective; The large marine ecosystem approach to regional seas action plans and conventions: a geographic perspective; Scientific and organizational aspects of large marine ecosystems research; Application of large marine ecosystems management to global marine pollution; Application of international global change research programs, including GLOBEC, to long-term large marine ecosystems management; Approaches to forecasting biomass yields in large marine ecosystems; Part Two: Regional Case Studies - Stress and Mitigation of Large Marine Ecosystems - long-term viability in the food chains, biomass yields, and oceanography of the Bay of bengal ecosystem; Effects of physical and biological changes on the biomass yield of the Humboldt Current ecosystem; Food chains, physical dynamics, perturbations and biomass yields of the Sea of Okhotsk; Effetcs of long-term physical and biological perturbations on the contemporary biomass yields of the Yellow Sea ecosystem; Long-term variability in the food chains, biomass yields, and oceanography of the Canary Current ecosystem; The large marine ecosystem of shelf areas in the Gulf of Guinea: long-term variability induced by climatic changes; Ecological and fishing features of the Adriatic Sea; Contrast between recent fishery trends and evidence for nutrient enrichment in two large marine ecosystems: The Mediterranean and The Black Seas; Startified models of large marine ecosystems: a general approach and an application to the South China Sea; Marine biogeographic provinces of the Bering, Chukchi and Beaufort Seas; Effects of climatic changes on the biomass yield of the Barents Sea, Norwegian Sea and West Greenland large marine ecosystems; The California Current, Benguela Current and Southwestern Atlantic Shelf ecosystems: a comparative approach to identifying factors regulating biomass yields; Part Three: Sustainability and Management of Large Marine Ecosystems - regional approach to large marine ecosystems; Legal regimes for management of large marine ecosystems and their component resources; Ocean management and the large marine ecosystem concept: taking the next step; Convention on the conservation of Antarctic marine living resources; Simulation study of effects of closed areas to all fishing, with particular reference to the North Sea ecosystem; Research and management in the Northern California Current ecosystem; Sutainable development of the Great Barrier Reef as a large marine ecosystem; Role of national political factors in the management of LMEs: evidence from West Africa; Large marine eocsystems of the Pacific Rim; Part Four: Technology Applications to the Monitoring Process in Large Marine Ecosystems - applications of advanced acoustic technology in large marine ecosystem studies; Application of molecular techniques to large marine ecosystems; Application of satellite remote sensing and optical buoys/moorings to LME studies
