The European version of the Science of Marine Reserves is the fourth educational booklet in a series published by PISCO. This booklet provides the latest scientific information about no-take marine reserves, reporting peer-reviewed research from throughout Europe and globally. The accessible graphics, text, fast facts, and case studies are designed to provide natural resource managers, government officials, scientists, and the public with relevant information about an important management tool.
Developed by the Science of Marine Reserves team, this booklet and associated online content is the culmination of a rigorous scientific review, including the participation of twelve European science advisors from nine countries along with hundreds of regional and international scientists and marine reserve experts who assisted with this or previous versions of the booklet.
