Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

New from Marine Policy comes the Open Access paper, Adaptive management, international co-operation and planning for marine conservation hotspots in a changing climate. The authors predict habitat-forming species (e.g. oyster beds) distributions under the effects of climate change, and map out these altered occurrences. The results predict future needs for international cooperation to manage Priority Marine Habitats. You can access the full-text using the link below.

Happy reading!
