Description

The books brought together in the “Seas and Oceans” Set make up a multi-disciplinary and systemic approach to the complexity, vulnerability, productivity and exploitation of the marine environment that is today faced with global change. This set of books does not simply describe and analyze the mechanisms that act on how these environments work, but it also presents a cross-disciplinary approach, leading to the governance, sustainable management of resources and adaptation of our societies to change.
The authors of this book study the particular vulnerability of coastal ecosystems to climate and anthropogenic change from the viewpoint of various scenarios and concepts. This explains the development of original monitoring systems and adaptation strategies of natural environments and societies. Extreme events, marine submersions, chemical and biological risks, along with human perceptions are analyzed by the authors of this book.
