Dear all,

I am pleased to announce the release of our latest paper entitled: 
Diving for science - science for diving: volunteer scuba divers support 
science and conservation in the Mediterranean Sea (Cerrano, Milanese, 
Ponti. Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems). 

The paper presents outcomes and some management-relevant applications of 
the citizen science initiative Reef Check Italia onlus, and a profile of 
the volunteers themselves including diving experience and motivations 
for volunteering.

Although the paper clearly does not relate to coral reefs, it can add to 
the discussion about diving in general. This may be especially true as 
most of the diving literature focuses on coral reef areas alone but - as 
recently pointed out also in our e-mail exchanges - the diving community 
is inherently diverse and we may want to keep an eye on what's going on 
in a variety of geographical and cultural contexts.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the other authors for a copy!

With my best regards


Dr Martina Milanese, PhD
