For the week of 13 April 2015

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

Marine Policy has published a new, open access title in which the authors reviewed the literature to determine the Key principles of marine ecosystem-based management. Their frequency analysis yielded 15 principles, of which the top five were: "Consider Ecosystem Connections, Appropriate Spatial & Temporal Scales, Adaptive Management, Use of Scientific Knowledge, [and] Integrated Management." You may access the full-text using the link above.

Also, IUCN's report, Protected Area Governance and Management, which launched during last November's World Parks Congress, is now available. Mobile internet users: do note that the full report is a 50+ megabyte PDF.

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
