New study ranks 'hotspots' of human impact on coastal areas
Date:7/9/2009

populations on coastal marine habitats.

Halpern explained that a large portion of the world's coastlines experience very little effect of what happens on land nearly half of the coastline and more than 90 percent of all coastal waters. "This is because a vast majority of the planet's landscape drains into relatively few very large rivers, that in turn affect a small amount of coastal area," said Halpern. "In these places with little impact from human activities on land, marine conservation can and needs to focus primarily on what is happening in the ocean. For example: fishing, climate change, invasive species, and commercial shipping."
