European version of The Science of Marine Reserves launched

Dr Peter Jones, with Professor Steve Gaines, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, University of California, Santa Barbara, has co-chaired the European Science Advisory Board which has overseen the publication of a European version of The Science of Marine Reserves. This is published by The Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (PISCO), with funding from Natural England, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Oregon State University and the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The booklet provides the latest scientific information about no‐take marine reserves, reporting peer-reviewed research from Europe and globally, and is based on the participation of twelve European science advisors from nine countries assisted by hundreds of regional and international scientists and marine reserve experts.

The Science of Marine Reserves includes accessible graphics, text, fast facts and case studies, providing information about an important management tool for natural resource managers, government officials, scientists and the public at large.

A copy of the European version of the Science of Marine Reserves can be downloaded at http://www.homepages.ucl.ac.uk/~ucfwpej/pdf/SMR_EU_Version_2011.pdf.
