First Paragraph

By now, there is no mistaking that the oceans are in peril. But, how do we move forward to address the problems and manage our ocean ecosystems for sustainability? How do we create new solutions to resource management challenges that span biological, social, and political disciplines? The compilation Ecosystem-Based Management for the Oceans, edited by Karen MacLeod and Heather Leslie, is probably the most comprehensive attempt at addressing these questions.
