- Reviews the elemental technology required for addressing conservation matters via proposing the coastal realm as a land-sea atmosphere of worldwide value, and by way of reviewing the natural-history beneficial properties of coastal-marine organisms
- Presents 3 ecologically and latitudinally targeted "real-world" case reviews to create a context for realizing of nearby structures, their cultures, and their conservation: the polar Bering Sea, the temperate Chesapeake Bay, and the tropical Bahamas
- Makes obvious the ecological stresses at the coastal realm, expanding premiums of atmosphere switch, lack of environment wellbeing and fitness, and fragmented governance
- Synthesizes the most important demanding situations for conservation and indicates destiny coverage and administration techniques, together with environment administration and wishes for reaching sustainability and addressing the environmental debt
