Abstract

The idea for this book came from a realisation that although the marine resources in Australia's large offshore areas are varied, valuable and of increasing national significance, these points are often poorly acknowledged and understood. Further, it was apparent to us that a clear understanding of the challenges that arise for the management of Australia's marine environment cannot be achieved without appreciating the complexities and cross-cutting nature of the activities and issues involved. This means that a broad scale perspective is required; one that is informed by contributions from a range of disciplines. Unfortunately, students, scholars and practitioners typically find themselves confined within single disciplines - often as a result of pressure or imperatives to increase knowledge depth. We realised that there was no book dedicated to Australia's marine domain which introduced the key disciplinary approaches and explained intersecting issues that would help to pave the way for the broader perspective we advocate. We therefore set ourselves the task of producing a volume to fill that gap.
