Chesapeake Quarterly
New Book Includes Bay Case Study
Ecosystem-Based Management for the Oceans, Karen McLeod and Heather Leslie, Editors, Island Press, May 2009, 392 pp.

Nineteen chapters by distinguished experts describe what it means to manage our oceans and coasts as ecosystems. At the book's heart lie the concepts of social and ecological resilience — the extent to which human and natural systems can maintain function in the face of disturbance. The Chesapeake Bay provides one powerful case study, with a chapter by Donald F. Boesch and Erica Goldman, and another by Lisa Wainger and Jim Boyd.
