New Publication: Monitoring MPAs by SCUBA in waters off Central California

News from the Monterey Bay Sanctuary Foundation:
A new publication – “Monitoring MPAs by SCUBA in waters off Central California: 2007/8 results of PISCO baseline monitoring surveys” is NOW available.
The booklet describes the patterns in state marine reserves based on two years of baseline data collected by PISCO at 8 sites. The project represents the most extensive ecological surveys to date of central coast kelp forests, and the results will provide a basis for long-term evaluations of MPA and reference sites.
This publication was made possible through funding and in-kind contributions from Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (PISCO), Monterey Bay Sanctuary Foundation, California Grant Sea, and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Lead authors are Dr Mark Carr, Hugo Selbie, Dan Malone with PISCO, and Dr. Steve Lonhart with MBNMS.
Hard copies are available via an email request and an electronic version can be downloaded from the SIMoN website .
We will also be posting this publication to the MBSF website. As always check the website for updates, as new products are being uploaded for your use.
Thank you – The MBSF Team
