For the week of 6 March 2017

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

PLOS ONE has published a new paper, Designing coastal conservation to deliver ecosystem and human well-being benefits. The authors used the western Lake Erie basin as a test-case "to develop a spatially-explicit conservation plan that identifies the most efficient locations for conservation actions to meet ecological goals while sustaining or enhancing human well-being values". Interestingly, they found "most concentrated areas of importance also are centered on lands that are already conserved, reflecting the lower costs and higher benefits of enlarging these conserved areas rather than conserving isolated, dispersed areas."

Also, we missed this when it came out in November, but for those of you in the data-portal business, be sure to check out: Best Practice Guide to Engage your Coastal Web Atlas User Community.

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 $489.15.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner & Allie Brown
