CLARK, John R. Coastal Seas : The Conservation Challenge. (Oxford) : Blackwell Science, (1998). First Edition. Pp. (2),iii-ix,(1),1-134. Illustrated. 8vo, photo-illustrated bluish card covers.

"This succinct, technical reference of coastal-zone resource management is aimed both at students taking courses in coastal management or marine conservation and practitioners in these fields.

In response to a worldwide demand, Coastal Seas deals mostly with methodology and provides practitioners, scholars and students with the ideas, tools, materials and strategies needed to manage coastal resources and shoreline development.

Although tropical developing nations have the greatest need for this book, the principles are universal and will be of interest and relevance to all. " - from the rear cover.
