Wednesday, December 11, 2019. 3:00PM. Webinar: Regional Research Needs for Coastal Marine EBM: Messages from the Practitioners. Amie West, University of Maryland. Sponsored by NMFS and NOAA Central Library. More information here.
Coastal regions of the US have unique ecosystem challenges and management complexities that need to be considered when planning and implementing ecosystem-based management (EBM). Researchers at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science are investigating the status and opportunities for EBM in coastal regions of the US. Amie will discuss the results of an online survey and semi-structured interviews conducted with coastal scientists and managers to describe practitioners' perspectives on EBM. She will also describe how a variety of additional information sources are being used to suggest emerging research opportunities to support EBM implementation.
