Leadership, social capital and incentives promote successful fisheries
One billion people depend on seafood as their primary source of protein and 25% of the world’s total animal protein comes from fisheries. Yet a third of fish stocks worldwide are overexploited orExpand
Threats to sandy beach ecosystems: A review
Abstract We provide a brief synopsis of the unique physical and ecological attributes of sandy beach ecosystems and review the main anthropogenic pressures acting on the world's single largest typeExpand
Oyster Reefs at Risk and Recommendations for Conservation, Restoration, and Management
Native oyster reefs once dominated many estuaries, ecologically and economically. Centuries of resource extraction exacerbated by coastal degradation have pushed oyster reefs to the brink ofExpand
Patterns, processes and regulatory mechanisms in sandy beach macrofauna: a multi-scale analysis
Physical and biological factors govern com- munity and population features of sandy beach macro- fauna. At the macroscale, species richness decreases from tropical to temperate beaches, and fromExpand
Navigating transformations in governance of Chilean marine coastal resources
Marine ecosystems are in decline. New transformational changes in governance are urgently required to cope with overfishing, pollution, global changes, and other drivers of degradation. Here weExpand
Sandy beaches at the brink

Healing small-scale fisheries by facilitating complex socio-ecological systems
The current global fisheries crises have immense implications for the health and viability of animal populations, as well as the ecosystems and habitats that support this biodiversity. These crisesExpand
Food web structure of sandy beaches: Temporal and spatial variation using stable isotope analysis
Abstract The food web structure of two sandy beach ecosystems with contrasting morphodynamics (dissipative vs. reflective) was examined using stable carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) isotopeExpand
