Change in marine benthos: the case for long-term studies
The EU coordinated COST 647 Project on coastal Benthic Ecology (1979-1991) made the case for long term benthic studies. A joint US and European symposium was convened at Glenlo Abbey, (Galway, Ireland; May 1994) to compare experiences in this research area. The ultimate aim was to reaffirm the case for long term studies and to address related inadequacies in scientific design and funding policies. This volume records the proceedings of the symposium, and is arranged in four sections: a perspective, written by the editors, which provides an overview of the essence of the symposium and recommendations deriving form the formal presentations and attendant discussions; case histories, incorporating examples of long term studies which give insight as to the use of their results by environmental managers and policy makers; protocols, procedures and methodologies, dealing with 'ways and means' and new technologies; and historical archived data, examining the value of traditional biological collections in addressing current environmental issues.
