The 32 papers that make up this book represent the current research and concerns about Marine Biodiversity in Europe, and will have wide appeal to all those interested in understanding and preserving the marine ecosystems of the world's oceans. Reprinted from HYDROBIOLOGIA volume (). Understanding Marine Biodiversity outlines the current state of our knowledge, and propose research agenda on marine biological diversity. This agenda represents a fundamental change in studying the ocean—emphasizing regional research across a range of space and time scales, enhancing the interface between taxonomy and ecology, and linking. This book brings together key studies from the deep sea and open ocean, to tropical shores and polar regions to consider how comparable the patterns and processes underlying diversity are in these different ecosystems. Marine Biodiversity will be a major resource for all those interested in biodiversity .

The book is therefore suitable for anyone addressing fisheries governance and/or biodiversity conservation.” (Marine Biology Research, 25 June ) 'A significant strengh of the book is its multidisciplinary approach combined with the contributors' collective hands-on experience. Marine Organismic Diversity and Diversity Preservation: Systematics, taxonomy and phylogeny Morphology Genetic diversity and conservation in the oceans Global and local change effects on marine biodiversity Diversity of functions Fragmentation effects Marine invasive organisms Conservation management. Marine Evolution and Ecology. Biodiversity loss in terrestrial environments associated with human activities has been appreciated as a major issue for some years now. What is less well documented is the effect of such activities, including climate change, on marine biodiversity. This pioneering book is the first to address this important but neglected topic, which is likely to be the key challenge for marine scientists in. Doctor of Science in marine sedimentology and geochemistry, André Monaco is also emeritus research director at the CNRS. He received the first prize of scientific culture of MEN in Research Director, Patrick Prouzet took care of the ecosystem approach to the scientific management of Ifremer. In the field of fisheries, he made amphihalin expertise on fish management internationally.
Synthesizing the latest research into marine biodiversity conservation and fisheries management, this book provides regional and global perspectives on the role of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in confronting this challenge. The approach is multidisciplinary, covering all the fields involved in designating and assessing MPAs: ecology, fisheries. About this book. Ecosystem services are emerging as a key driver of conservation policy and environmental management. Delivery of ecosystem services depends on the efficient functioning of ecosystems, which in turn depends on biodiversity and environmental Range: £ - £ Recent decades have witnessed strong declines in fish stocks around the globe, amid growing concerns about the impact of fisheries on marine and freshwater biodiversity. Fisheries biologists and managers are therefore increasingly asking about aspects of ecology, behaviour, evolution and biodiversity that were traditionally studied by people working in very separate fields. marine ecosystems, they have developed new approaches to ocean management that seek to balance the human uses of coastal and ocean environments while maintaining the integrity of the marine ecosystem. Scientific research on how marine ecosystems function and react to change has helped inform policy decisions that promote the sustainable use.
