Marine Flora and Fauna of Hong Kong and Southern China

Overview

This was to obtain more information about the newly-established reserve (the only one in Hong Kong) and the changes that had taken place on the seabed in the southern waters since they were dredged between 1992-1995, respectively, and, in the latter case, to see if there had been any subsequent benthic recovery.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Contains 36 original contributions written by researchers from Hong Kong, China, the UK, Denmark, Japan, and Thailand, addressing taxonomy and anatomy; behavior and physiology; marine parks and reserves; and pollution. Contributions primarily address the marine fauna of the now established Cape d'Aguilar Marine Reserve and the adjacent seabed of the southern waters of Hong Kong following extensive dredging. The proceedings also show that the territorial waters of Hong Kong are now widely and badly perturbated but that for some components of the epibenthos, post-dredging recovery has begun. An introductory essay written by the editor outlines the need for regional cooperation in southern China to promote coastal zone management for marine conservation in Hong Kong. Lacks a subject index. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
