Summary
  • "Investigates the health and sustainability of the world's oceans, with a special emphasis on climate change and issues affecting marine reserves, fisheries and coastal ecosystems" -- Container
  • Investigates the health and sustainability of the world's oceans, with a special emphasis on climate change and issues affecting marine-reserves, fisheries, and coastal ecosystems. Portugal & New England: Once home to proud seafarers, fishing communities on both continents are now struggling to reinvent themselves after the collapse of the North Atlantic cod fishery. Greenland: Discover the surprising link between melt lakes forming on Greenland's Glaciers and accelerating sea level rise. And what effect will sea level rise have on the low-level countries of the world? Bangladesh & India: If sea levels contrinure to rise, half of Bangladesh's rice farms wll be underwater. The crop loss will force millions of environmental immigrants to flee into neighboring countries like India. Florida Keys & Belize: Coastal reefs have long suffered from human development and over-fishing. Marine sanctuaries are now reversing the trend by providing safe havens for fish, sea turtles, and corals, whose populations are dramatically rebounding. South American Andes: For millennia, the glaciers of the Andes Mountains have been the sole source of irrigation water for farmers and herders, but they are expected to be gone within the next few years. As more and more people are relocating to coasal areas, what are the implications for Lima's population and its fisheries?
