Marine conservation biology : the science of maintaining the sea's biodiversity by Elliott A Norse( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marine Conservation Biology breaks new ground by creating the conceptual framework for the new field of marine conservation biology -- the science of protecting, recovering, and sustainably using the living sea. It synthesizes the latest knowledge and ideas from leading thinkers in disciplines ranging from larval biology to sociology, making it a must-read for research and teaching faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate and advanced undergraduate students (who share an interest in bringing conservation biology to marine issues). Likewise, its lucid scientific examinations illuminate key issues facing environmental managers, policymakers, advocates, and funders concerned with the health of our oceans

Disturbance of the seabed by mobile fishing gear : a comparison with forest clear-cutting by Les Watling( )

Dynamic modeling for marine conservation by Matthias Ruth( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of disturbed ecosystems, from devastating algal blooms to the loss of whale populations, have demonstrated the vulnerability of the oceans' biodiversity. Conservation of marine systems requires knowledge from many different fields in order to understand the complex interactions that threaten those systems. Dynamic Modeling for Marine Conservation provides a method of learning how these systems function, determining how natural and human actions have put them in peril and how we can best influence the marine world in order to maintain biodiversity
Aspects of the zoogeographic distribution of Callinectes (Brachyura: Portunidae) by Elliott A Norse( Book )

Aspects of the zoogeographic distribution of Callinectes (Brachyura: Portunidae) by Elliott A Norse( )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Three aspects of the geographic distribulions of swimming crabs in the genus Callinectes are examined. C. maracaiboensis, previously thought to be endemic to the Lake Maracaibo area, occurs in Jamaica, Colombia, and Curaçao. Although typically found in fresh and brackish waters, available evidence indicates that C. maracaiboensis cannot complete its life cycle in waters of low or highly variable salinity, and could not have evolved in Lake Maracaibo when it was cut off from the Caribbean. The larvae of C. sapidus, the species most successful in temperate waters, can neither hatch nor molt much below 20°C, and females in the northerly part of the range spawn only during the warm season. The occurrence of Callinectes in a geographic area implies settlement from the plankton, rather than adult immigration. Callinectes make their farthest poleward penetration in West Atlantic areas having warmer summers and cooler winters than those at comparable latitudes in the East Pacific and East Atlantic. Thus, latitudinal distribution seems to be limited by the effects of summer temperatures on larvae, rather than winter temperatures. Caribbean high islands, typically possessing brackish and fresh as well as marine environments, have most or all potentially occurring Callinectes. Low islands, typically without significant amounts of water of reduced salinity, lack C. bocourti, C. maracaiboensis, C. sapidus, and C. danae. Analysis of geographic records shows that low salinity water may be an ecological requirement for some Callinectes, which are distributed similarly to freshwater shrimps, genus Macrobrachium. The most eurytopic Callinectes are absent from areas of the Caribbean populated by their less eurytopic congeners due to their lack of suitable reduced salinity refuges
