Land use is a better predictor of tropical seagrass condition than marine protection
Abstract Effective coastal conservation requires a better understanding of how human activities on land may directly and indirectly affect adjacent marine communities. However, the relationshipExpand
Small-scale seagrass fisheries can reduce social vulnerability: a comparative case study
Abstract Small-scale fisheries are in decline, negatively impacting sources of food and employment for coastal communities. Therefore, we need to assess how biological and socio-economic conditionsExpand

Author(s): Quiros, T E Angela Lopez | Advisor(s): Croll, Donald; Tershy, Bernie | Abstract: The earth is losing biodiversity and ecosystem services due to anthropogenic impacts, and one way toExpand
Blue Carbon Ecosystem Services Through a Vulnerability Lens: Opportunities to Reduce Social Vulnerability in Fishing Communities
Ecosystem services (ES) are benefits nature provides to humans; these services change in space and time and are largely dependent on context. Coastal habitat that provides key ES are blue carbonExpand
