Large Marine Ecosystems
- K. Sherman, Narragansett Laboratory and Office of Marine Ecosystem Studies, NOAA-NMFS, Narragansett, RI, USA
This is a book which examines much of what we know and also what we dont know about the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem and its inherent variability. Building on recent work and exciting findings about the predictability of the Benguela and other coastal upwelling ecosystems, the book takes a look towards the future and highlights the difficulty of making predictions in such a complex and variable region. The book illustrates what scientists and managers from developed and developing countries can achieve by working together, and it lays a solid base upon which to build wise management and ensure sustainable use of the ecosystem.
Oceanographers, marine biologists, ocean/fishery managers, terrestrial scientists and those interested in climate variability and change.
