About this book

Human-induced environmental disturbance – through fishery activities, coastal development, tourism and pollution – is a major challenge to the restoration and conservation of marine biodiversity. Synthesizing the latest research into marine biodiversity conservation and fisheries management, Marine Protected Areas: A Multidisciplinary Approach provides regional and global perspectives on the role of Marine Protected Areas: A Multidisciplinary Approach (MPAs) in confronting this challenge. The approach is multidisciplinary, covering all the fields involved in designating and assessing MPAs: ecology, fisheries science, statistics, economics, sociology and genetics.

Marine Protected Areas: A Multidisciplinary Approach is structured around key topics, including threats to marine ecosystems and resources, the effects and effectiveness of MPAs and the scaling-up of MPA systems. Both theoretical and empirical approaches are considered. Recognizing the diversity of MPA sciences, Marine Protected Areas: A Multidisciplinary Approach also includes one part designed specifically as a practical guide to implementing scientific assessment studies of MPAs and monitoring programs.
