Managing the marine environment: is the DPSIR framework holistic enough? (2011)
Journal Article
Atkins, J. P., Gregory, A. J., Burdon, D., & Elliott, M. (2011). Managing the marine environment: is the DPSIR framework holistic enough?. Systems research and behavioral science, 28(5), 497-508. https://doi.org/10.1002/sres.1111

Ever increasing and diverse use of the marine environment and consequent impacts on marine life, habitats and landscapes make prominent the need for policy and policy-making procedures that promote resilience and sustainability. In this paper, we foc... Read More about Managing the marine environment: is the DPSIR framework holistic enough?.

Management of the marine environment: Integrating ecosystem services and societal benefits with the DPSIR framework in a systems approach (2011)
Journal Article
Atkins, J. P., Burdon, D., Elliott, M., & Gregory, A. J. (2011). Management of the marine environment: Integrating ecosystem services and societal benefits with the DPSIR framework in a systems approach. Marine pollution bulletin, 62(2), 215-226. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpolbul.2010.12.012

Ever increasing and diverse use of the marine environment is leading to human-induced changes in marine life, habitats and landscapes, making necessary the development of marine policy that considers all members of the user community and addresses cu...

An application of contingent valuation and decision tree analysis to water quality improvements (2007)
Journal Article
Atkins, J. P., Burdon, D., & Allen, J. H. (2007). An application of contingent valuation and decision tree analysis to water quality improvements. Marine pollution bulletin, 55(10-12), 591-602. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpolbul.2007.09.018

This paper applies contingent valuation and decision tree analysis to investigate public preferences for water quality improvements, and in particular reduced eutrophication. Such preferences are important given that the development of EU water quali... Read More about An application of contingent valuation and decision tree analysis to water quality improvements.

Estuarine, coastal and marine ecosystem restoration: Confusing management and science – A revision of concepts (2007)
Journal Article
Burdon, D., Hemingway, K. L., Elliott, M., & Apitz, S. E. (2007). Estuarine, coastal and marine ecosystem restoration: Confusing management and science – A revision of concepts. Estuarine, coastal and shelf science, 74(3), 349-366. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecss.2007.05.034

This review presents recent concepts, understanding and experience of the restoration, recovery and human-mediated modification of estuarine, coastal and marine ecosystems. It shows that these can be divided into four categories: natural recovery fro...

Identification, definition and quantification of goods and services provided by marine biodiversity: Implications for the ecosystem approach (2007)
Journal Article
Beaumont, N., Austen, M., Atkins, J., Burdon, D., Degraer, S., Dentinho, T., …Zarzycki, T. (2007). Identification, definition and quantification of goods and services provided by marine biodiversity: Implications for the ecosystem approach. Marine pollution bulletin, 54(3), 253-265. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpolbul.2006.12.003

This paper identifies and defines ecosystem goods and services provided by marine biodiversity. Case studies have been used to provide an insight into the practical issues associated with the assessment of marine ecosystem goods and services at speci...

An initial economic evaluation of water quality improvements in the Randers Fjord, Denmark (2006)
Journal Article
Burdon, D., & Atkins, J. P. (2006). An initial economic evaluation of water quality improvements in the Randers Fjord, Denmark. Marine pollution bulletin, 53(1-4), 195-204. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.marpolbul.2005.09.024

Eutrophication of estuarine and coastal waters has only been recognised as a potential problem since the early 1980s. This problem is being addressed by the European Union through the implementation of recent water quality legislation, which also cal...
