About this book

Marine protected areas (MPAs) have an important role in marine conserva­ tion programmes around the world. Although most have been established relatively recently when compared with protected areas on land, there is considerable expertise on their identification, setting up and management. Some techniques have been adapted from those used on land. Others are novel, and unique to marine conservation. The chapters in this book give an insight into this fast developing field where experiment and innovation work alongside techniques which have been tried and tested. The guiding princi­ ples behind key stages in the setting up and management of MP As are described, and case studies illustrate how they have worked. While it is most encouraging to read about the successes, the case studies also point to difficulties which have been encountered. Not all of the examples are new or recent but, together, they illustrate what is happening in this field.

Reviews

There is a rapidly growing body of literature on MPAs, filling a long felt gap, and this is a particularly practical addition - Reef Encounter; The contributors have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the subject, and inlcude those who have written earlier practical guides on the subject. This, effective editing, and good cross-referencing among chapters, leads to a tight focus throughout the book ...Those involved in the day-to-day trials of trying to make marine protected area programmes work, now and in the future, will benefit from the collected wisdom of those with the experience of how to do just that. - Biological Conservation; a useful and timely set of guidelines and examples for anyone who is likely to be affected by MPAs - in other words all marine scientists. - Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology; This excellent selection of papers covers every facet of marine protected areas (MPAs), from identifiction of sites, through management techniques and tools, to enforcement. - Biologist; This book describes the selection, setting up and techniques for management of marine protected sites internationally. Principles are supported by practical case studies drawn from the main marine regions of the world - Ethology Ecology & Evolution
