The eastern English Channel, the narrow channel of water separating northern France and southeast England is an area of intense human use of the array of resources concentrated into its relative small area. The vul- nerability of living resources and their habitats brought together French and British maritime experts within a common project (called CHARM): to create an atlas of marine resource habitats in the eastern English Channel so as to provide planners and decision-makers with the… Expand
Conservation of marine habitats under multiple human uses. Methods, objectives and constraints to optimize a Marine Protected Areas network in the eastern English Channel
The eastern English Channel is a significant economic area that supports a number of human-based activities, such as tourism and recreational activities, international ports and shipping, and theExpand
A digital atlas to link ontogenic shifts in fish spatial distribution to the environment of the eastern English Channel. Dab, Limanda limanda as a case-study
TLDR
Dab response to hydrological parameters was more variable (depending on the life stages and seasons considered) than response to physical parameters, which contribute to a better understanding of this species spatial ecology in the eastern English Channel. Expand
Quantitative mapping of fish habitat: A useful tool to design spatialised management measures and marine protected area with fishery objectives
Abstract The delineation of essential fish habitats is necessary to identify, design and prioritize efficient marine protected area (MPA) networks with fishery objectives, capable, in addition toExpand
Systematic conservation planning in the eastern English Channel: comparing the Marxan and Zonation decision-support tools
TLDR
Outputs from Marxan and Zonation are compared and it is shown that the two software packages identified similar sets of priority areas, although the relatively wide distribution of habitat types and species considered offered much flexibility, suggesting that the choice of cost metric has a greater influence on conservation-planning analyses than the choices of software.

The mosaic of habitats of the Seine estuary: Insights from food-web modelling and network analysis
Ecological network analysis was applied in the Seine estuary ecosystem, northern France, integrating ecological data from the years 1996 to 2002. The Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE) approach was used toExpand
Process-driven and biological characterisation and mapping of seabed habitats sensitive to trawling
TLDR
Outputs of a process-driven benthic habitat sensitivity (PDS) model are compared to the structure, composition and distribution ofbenthic invertebrates in the Eastern English Channel and southern part of the North Sea to suggest that PDS may help monitor management effort by evaluating the difference between the current state and the presumed optimal environmental status of marine benthi habitats.

Integrated modelling tools to support risk-based decision-making in marine spatial management
TLDR
This modelling framework can support the implementation of an ecosystem approach to marine spatial manage- ment, as it enables the derivation of probabilistic estimates which can be used directly in risk- based decision-making. Expand
History of benthic research in the English Channel: From general patterns of communities to habitat mosaic description
Abstract Benthic studies in the English Channel (EC), a shallow megatidal and epicontinental sea, began in the 1960s and 1970s with the work of teams led by Norman Holme (UK) and Louis Cabioch (F).Expand

TLDR
The results show the value of integrating community-based and science-based approaches in conservation planning to achieve community acceptance and conservation utility and reveal that people's assessments on the basis of their traditional ecological knowledge may serve as a reasonable proxy for scientific approaches in selecting areas of ecological value.

TLDR
The results show that a stakeholder-driven design process can use systematic conservation-planning methods to successfully produce options for network design that satisfy multiple conservation and socioeconomic objectives. Expand

Like many states and territories, South Australia has a legacy of marine reserves considered to be inadequate to meet current conservation objectives. In this paper we configured exploratory marineExpand
Systematic conservation planning
TLDR
A more systematic approach to locating and designing reserves has been evolving and this approach will need to be implemented if a large proportion of today's biodiversity is to exist in a future of increasing numbers of people and their demands on natural resources. Expand

An operational model for implementing conservation action.
TLDR
Implementing effective conservation action requires that systematic assessments be integrated functionally with a process for developing an implementation strategy and processes for stakeholder collaboration while maintaining a broad focus on the implementation of conservation action. Expand
Habitat variation, species diversity and ecological functioning in a marine system
TLDR
The demonstration of habitat variation as a driver of functional composition and diversity suggests that habitat heterogeneity should be explicitly included within studies trying to predict the effect of species loss on ecosystem function. Expand
