For the week of 24 November 2014

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

From the Journal for Nature Conservation comes the Open Access paper, A decision-support tool to facilitate discussion of no-take boundaries for Marine Protected Areas during stakeholder consultation processes. This method was tested for a planning process in Atlantic Canada. You can access the full-text for free using the link above.

PS: It sounds like about 50% more of you received the last issue of the Literature Update due to the omission of abstracts. Spam filters - especially Outlook - don't like science words (e.g. test, variables, we could go on but then this would be flagged, too!) so from now on we'll likely be omitting abstracts. If you'd rather have the abstracts, or you really like *not* having them, please let me know.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
