Dear coral list:
I would like to advertise a coupled papers that were published last
year about MPAs, which are freely available in the link below. They
are an attempt to see why MPAs fail and provide a broader overview of
the challenge ahead protecting coral reefs and other ecosystems.

move beyond protected areas: A review of the technical and practical
shortcoming of protected areas on land and sea. Marine Ecology
