para la conservación y el manejo de la costa uruguaya”
(“Basis for conservation and management of the Uruguayan
coast”) is an initiative of VIDA SILVESTRE URUGUAY, a
non-governmental organization (NGO) created in 1995, whose primary
mission is working for nature conservation in Uruguay.
includes 63 scientific papers of more than 150 local researchers, about
the ecosystems of the Uruguayan Platense and Atlantic coasts, making
available to scientists, managers and ecologically concerned people,
crucial information of the region.
At the same
time, this material contributes with new concepts and points of view in
relation with priorities and perspectives for the conservation and
management of the coastal zone. It covers biological, geological,
palaeontological and archaeological patrimony of this coastal zone,
from plankton ecology to fisheries resources’ biology and
management, from pollution to participative coastal zone management.
The book is
timely, as it provides meaningful information on the environment,
biodiversity and resources’ biology, that may surely contribute
for regional management strategies and ecosystem conservation.
