    • Coastal ecosystem-based management with nonlinear ecological functions and values 

      Barbier, Edward; Koch, Evamaria W.; Silliman, Brian R.; Hacker, Sally D.; Wolanski, Eric.; Primavera, Jurgenne H. ORCID; Granek, Elise F.; Polasky, Stephen; Aswani, Shankar; Cramer, Lori A.; Stoms, David M.; Kennedy, Chris J.; Bael, David.; Kappel, Carrie V.; Perillo, G. M. E.; Reed, Denise J. (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2008)
      A common assumption is that ecosystem services respond linearly to changes in habitat size. This assumption leads frequently to an “all or none” choice of either preserving coastal habitats of converting them to human use. ...
    • Non-linearity in ecosystem services: temporal and spatial variability in coastal protection 

      Koch, Evamaria W.; Barbier, Edward B.; Silliman, Brian R.; Reed, Denise J.; Perillo, Gerardo M. E.; Hacker, Sally D.; Granek, Elise F.; Primavera, Jurgenne H. ORCID; Muthiga, Nyawira; Polasky, Stephen; Halpern, Benjamin S.; Kennedy, Christopher J.; Kappel, Carrie V.; Wolanski, Eric (Ecological Society of America, 2009)
      Natural processes tend to vary over time and space, as well as between species. The ecosystem services these natural processes provide are therefore also highly variable. It is often assumed that ecosystem services are ...
    • The way forward with ecosystem-based management in tropical contexts: Reconciling with existing management systems 

      Aswani, Shankar; Christie, Patrick; Muthiga, Nyawira; Mahon, Robin; Primavera, Jurgenne H. ORCID; Cramer, Lori A.z; Barbier, Edward B.; Granek, Elise F.; Kennedy, Chris; Wolanski, Eric; Hacker, Sally (Elsevier, 2012)
      This paper discusses some of the challenges and opportunities that can arise when implementing ecosystem-basedmanagement (EBM) in tropical nations. EBM creates a new series of challenges, problems, and opportunities that ...
