Overview

The future is uncertain for the world's large marine ecosystems. These relatively narrow ocean zones, which produce nearly 95% of useable marine biomass, are becoming increasingly stressed both by natural and anthropogenic changes. The potential for consequent negative effects on global ecologies and economies has aroused major international concern. This new volume is a state-of-the-art update on large marine ecosystems, representing a multidisciplinary effort to develop a more holistic approach to the research, monitoring and mangaement of marine resources.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A state-of-the-art update on LMEs, based on the first international conference on LMEs held in Monaco in 1990. It represents a multidisciplinary effort to develop a more holistic approach to the research, monitoring, and management of marine resources. The contributors--oceanographers, biologists, ecologists, modelers, managers, lawyers, and geographers--deal with the various environmental and human impacts on ocean productivity. They provide scientific, legal, and technological arguments for managing LMEs as multinational units, in order to sustain the biomass yields of major coastal regions. Member price, $37.56.
