Journal Article
Elliott, M., Burdon, D., Atkins, J., Borja, A., Cormier, R., de Jonge, V., & Turner, R. (2017). “And DPSIR begat DAPSI(W)R(M)!” - A unifying framework for marine environmental management. Marine pollution bulletin, 118(1-2), 27-40. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpolbul.2017.03.049

The marine environment is a complex system formed by interactions between ecological structure and functioning, physico-chemical processes and socio-economic systems. An increase in competing marine uses and users requires a holistic approach to mari... Read More about “And DPSIR begat DAPSI(W)R(M)!” - A unifying framework for marine environmental management.
