Governing a Divided Ocean: The Transformative Power of Ecological Connectivity in the BBNJ negotiations
Science plays an important role in the emergence, development, and implementation of new environmental regimes. However, there are opposing views regarding the type of knowledge that is considered
Unlocking the history of a trans‐Atlantic invader: Did the human slave trade impact Brown mussel dispersal?
Brown mussels exhibit a trans‐Atlantic distribution putatively caused by either native dispersal or artificial gene flow, likely in concert with the transport of enslaved people from Africa.
Towards a sustainable economic governance in the East Sea
The East Sea and its resources play a crucial role in Vietnam’s 2030 and vision to 2045 development agenda. This new “marine economy” model brings with its enormous opportunities, but also challenges


Nonindigenous biota on artificial structures: could habitat creation facilitate biological invasions?
It is argued that pontoons and pilings represent beachheads (i.e. entry points for invasion) for many nonindigenous epibiota and so enhance the spread and establishment of NIS in estuaries and so be a serious threat to native biodiversity.
Estimating dispersal distance in the deep sea: challenges and applications to marine reserves
It is proposed that a PLD that guarantees a minimum dispersal distance for a wide range of species should be used in the planning of marine protected areas in the deep sea, and more data are required to enhance accuracy and address the high variability in PLD between and within taxonomic groups.
Cross-border cooperation in Maritime Spatial Planning
Benthic Studies and Environmental Assessment in the Oil Producing Area of the Niger Delta
The oceans of the world are divided into two areas; the benthic zone or seafloor environment and the pelagic zone or water environment. The continental slope and beyond make up the benthic zone and
Biodiversity of the Pelagic Ocean
The basis for a predictive understanding of the interaction between diversity and ecological process can be greatly enhanced relatively inexpensively by systematically collating existing data and working up extant collections of material.
