Marine conservation: Integrating science and policy

Principal Investigators:

Larry B. Crowder

Marine conservation requires not only an understanding of the biological, physical, and ecological science, but it also requires a mature understanding of the socio-political process. Poor science can doom the implementation of wise marine conservation practices, but naivete among scientists regarding the policymaking process also can slow the application of good science. I propose two major goals for my time as a Center Fellow on sabbatical at NCEAS during 2003-2004. First, I will write a book tentatively titled, Marine Conservation: Integrating... more
