Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

PLoS ONE has published the open access title, Assessment of Habitat Representation across a Network of Marine Protected Areas with Implications for the Spatial Design of Monitoring. The authors examined if the California MPA network effectively conserved various seafloor habitats. While many features were protected, others were not included in park boundaries. You may access the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
