Book description

The sustainable exploitation of the marine environment depends upon our capacity to develop systems of management with predictable outcomes. Unfortunately, marine ecosystems are highly dynamic and this property could conflict with the objective of sustainable exploitation. This book investigates the theory that the population and behavioural dynamics of predators at the upper end of marine food chains can be used to assist with management. Since these species integrate the dynamics of marine ecosystems across a wide range of spatial and temporal scales, they offer new sources of information that can be formally used in setting management objectives. This book examines the current advances in the understanding of the ecology of marine predators and will investigate how information from these species could be used in management.

Reviews

‘Each section of the volume has an extensive bibliography which may be one of its most valuable contents allowing an easy access to the many published sources on the subject. It is indexed in a detailed fashion and will be a valuable addition to a botanical library… an invaluable contribution to the marine conservation literature … I would strongly recommend this book to all biologists to rectify any imbalance that may have occurred in their scientific education’
