Historical perspective and selective review of the literature on human impacts on the UK's marine environment
Prepared by English Nature for the DETR Working Group On the Review of Marine Nature Conservation
20 pp. ISSN 0967-876X
At the Working Group meeting held on 30 March 2000 it was
agreed that English Nature would provide some further dialogue
concerning impacts in the marine environment, selected references
as well as further information supporting the text given in
Laffoley & Bines (2000). Human impacts form just one of the
drivers behind the implementation of any effective conservation
policy and programme, helping to prioritise actions within a wider
comprehensive and representative framework.
The production of this paper was seen as giving all members of
the Working Group the same insight into the principles, history,
some of the key literature and initiatives relevant to this area.
This historical perspective and selective review is provided in
fulfilment of this Working Group action.
