Oceans Past: A Guide to Oceans Future
Date:1/14/2008

lm, chair of History of Marine Animal Populations, a project of the Census of Marine Life.

Covering more than 70% of the earths surface, for centuries the oceans appeared to offer limitless supplies of food and other resources for humankind. But this has proved to be a false impression, as demonstrated by the extinction of once-abundant species, the depletion of sensitive ecosystems, and episodes such as the extreme exploitation and later collapse of cod populations on the Grand Banks off the coasts of Newfoundland. Yet all too often the lessons from our historical interactions with marine ecosystems are little known, let alone learned.

Oceans Past: Management Insights from the History of Marine Animal Population deploys historical techniques to improve knowledge and offer a holistic understanding of the patterns and processes of change in the marine environment. It demonstrates the value of validated evidence derived from primary sources as varied as archaeological finds, newspaper reports, business advertisements, municipal archives, fishing returns, whaling logbooks, trade journals, personal records, and state departmental memoranda.

The contributions to this volume range widely over time and space. Their topical scope, moreover, is very broad, with coverage of species ranging from common periwinkle snails to sponges, crustaceans,wildfowl, alewives, cod, whales and human scientists and policy-makers, says Dr David J Starkey.
