Dear Sophie,

The publications you mention focus primarily on the ecological aspects of
designing marine reserves.  Those are, of course, important, but you should
also be aware of the emerging body of literature on the social, economic,
and cultural considerations relevant to designing effective marine reserves.
You may find the following publication of interest- it is due out soon in
Coral Reefs and is available in the Online First.  

Cinner, J. (2007) Designing marine reserves to reflect local socioeconomic
conditions: Lessons from long-enduring customary management systems. Coral
Reefs: in press
