Introduction

 
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.
