For the week of 27 February 2017

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

PLOS ONE has published a new paper, Methods for calculating Protection Equality for conservation planning. The authors "illustrate the [Protection Equality] metrics with two case studies: coral reef protection across countries and ecoregions in the Coral Triangle, and representation of ecoregions of six of the largest countries in the world. Our results provide repeatable transparency to the issue of representation in [Protected Area] networks and provide a starting point for further discussion, evaluation and testing of representation metrics."

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

Estimated cost to rent or purchase all pay-walled articles included in this issue from their respective publishers: US $468.50. Please note that Marine Ecology Progress Series (MEPS) does not allow individual articles to be purchased; it requires a €4,955 annual subscription which was not inlcuded in our calculation.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner & Allie Brown
