Overview

This succinct, technical reference of coastal-zone resource management is aimed both at students taking courses in coastal management or marine conservation and practitioners in these fields. In response to a worldwide demand, Coastal Seas deals mostly with methodology and provides practitioners, scholars and students with the ideas, tools, materials and strategies needed to manage coastal resources and shoreline development.

  • Presents the outcome of nineteen international coastal zone conservation case studies.
  • Discusses resource vulnerabilities, design of coastal conservation programs, methods and tools for conservation, and sources of professional training.
