Media reviews

'I would certainly recommend that this book be put on the reading list for any ecological or environmental degree course.' Biological Conservation, 107 (2002) 'Waters in Peril is nevertheless a very useful, well-written and up-to-date review of the global status of our oceans and their conservation. This is a valuable addition to undergraduate or postgraduate courses on marine conservation, biodiversity and pollution. ...highly recommend this book to the libraries of universities and marine research institutes.' Hydrobiologia, 493 (2003)
