9780813037615: Sirenian Conservation: Issues and Strategies in Developing Countries

This important scientific volume comprehensively explores the biology and ecological status of manatees and dugongs in all of the geographic regions where they can be found today, from the Caribbean to Eastern Africa, from Arabia to the Amazon, and from Japan through the South Pacific to Australia.
     Many of these dwindling populations are situated in developing countries--locales that have previously received little attention in the scientific literature.
     In these areas, people occupying rivers or coastlines still capture sirenians for food and other uses (oil, bones for carving, leather). In addition, disruption, erosion, or complete loss of sirenian habitat occurs because of dredge and fill, coastal run-off, chemical pollution, and damage from boat propellers.
     Sirenian Conservation features contributions from an international group of scientists who are working to address the many challenges to manatee and dugong food supply, environment, reproduction, and survival. They share stories of programs that rescue, rehabilitate, release, and monitor these animals; offer reports on practical, replicable, and cost-effective management techniques; and summarize current research strategies.

Book Description:

Saving manatees worldwide

"A practical 'state of the science' review of the conservation of manatees and dugongs in developing countries. The editors have done an excellent job of selecting an international team of more than 80 authors, including researchers and managers who have the responsibility of working with stakeholders to ensure conservation of both the cultural and biological diversity of sirenians. An excellent primer that provides both strategies and tools for continued research progress."--Annalisa Berta, San Diego State University
