The structure and functioning of our estuaries and seas are shifting due to diverse drivers from local to global scales. The resulting threats to these systems are often all too apparent, yet such changes can also present new opportunities. The challenge is to harness these opportunities through new ways of thinking, scientific developments, innovative technology and more effective integration of science and management.
This challenge formed the overarching theme of the 57th Estuarine Coastal Sciences Association conference,Changing estuaries, coasts and shelf systems - Diverse threats and opportunities,held in Perth, Western Australia in September 2018. We are now calling for submissions of scientific papers on conference proceedings to be published in a special issue ofEstuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science. We encourage submissions on transformative research within the following broad themes that explore or advance opportunities arising from the many threats to our estuaries and seas.
1. Environment,e.g. Coastal response to a changing climate; Forecasting physical-biological processes; Biogeochemistry, element cycling and greenhouse gas dynamics.
2. Biodiversity,e.g. Population dynamics and adaptation; Connectivity; Ecosystem function and resilience, including novel measurement and prediction approaches.
3. People and management,e.g. Sustainable natural resource exploitation;Aquaculture;Societal values;Ecosystem service delivery
4. Integration,e.g. Socio-ecological sustainability and resilience; Cumulative risk assessment and tradeoffs;Ecosystem restoration;Novel monitoring, modelling and stakeholder engagement approaches; Effective governance
