Marine Protected Areas: understanding how levels of protection mediate the flow of marine ecosystem services
Marine protected areas (MPAs) are a key management tool to halt the global decline in marine biodiversity and fish stocks. This project aims to increase understanding of how the level of management of MPAs can influence the delivery of marine ecosystems
