Providing a guide for marine conservation practice, Marine Conservation takes a whole-systems approach, covering major advances in marine ecosystem understanding. Its premise is that conservation must be informed by the natural histories of organisms together with the hierarchy of scale-related linkages and ecosystem processes. The authors introduce a broad range of overlapping issues and the conservation mechanisms that have been devised to achieve marine conservation goals. The book provides students and conservation practitioners with a framework for thoughtful, critical thinking in order to incite innovation in the 21st century.

"Marine Conservation presents a scholarly but eminently readable case for the 

necessity of a systems approach to conserving the oceans, combining superb introductions

to the science, law and policy frameworks with carefully chosen case studies. This superb volume

is a must for anyone interested in marine conservation, from students and practitioners to

lay readers and policy-makers."
