"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."
