Constraints of terrestrial protected area solutions in protecting marine biodiversity

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Traditionally the concepts of terrestrial protected areas have been used in designating marine

    protected areas. We discuss the differences between marine and terrestrial protected areas and

    highlight the need to consider the movement of species through marine protected boundaries. The

    source of most productivity differs; in terrestrial systems it is all attached whereas in the marine

    environment much occurs in the water column and cannot be restrained by artificial boundaries. This

    has major implications for the management of marine protected areas.
