Marine Protected Area Design

Given that the journal /The Professional Geographer/ may not be on your
frequent-reading list, I’m writing to draw your attention to a recently
published focus section, “Marine Geomorphology as a Determinant for
Essential Life Habitat and Marine Protected Area Design
<>” (Volume 63, Issue 4),
guest edited by William Heyman and Dawn Wright and including the
following papers:

*Marine Geomorphology in the Design of Marine Reserve Networks*
William D. Heyman & Dawn J. Wright

*Geomorphic Characterization of Reef Fish Aggregation Sites in the Upper
Florida Keys, USA, Using Single-Beam Acoustics*
Arthur C. R. Gleason, G. Todd Kellison & R. Pamela Reid

*Groupers on the Edge: Shelf Edge Spawning Habitat in and Around Marine
Reserves of the Northeastern Gulf of Mexico*

*Elements for Building a Participatory, Ecosystem-Based Marine Reserve
William D. Heyman

*A GIS-Based Tool for Representing Larval Dispersal for Marine Reserve
