Wilkinson, C. Green, A, Almany, J. and Dionne, S. 2003. Monitoring Coral Reef Marine Protected Areas: Version 1. A Practical Guide on how Monitoring can Support Effective Management of MPAs. Australian Institute of Marine Science, Townsville, Australia and IUCN Global Marine Program, Gland, Switzerland
This guide was created after numerous requests from managers of marine protected areas (MPAs) around the world who asked for advice on designing and implementing monitoring programmes to help them manage their MPAs more effectively.
The goals of this book are to demonstrate how monitoring can play a major role in the effective management of MPAs and to provide advice on which monitoring programmes facilitate effective management and demonstrate how monitoring has played an important role in the effective management of MPAs using case studies from around the world.
