The coast, also known as the coastline or seashore, is the area where land meets the sea or ocean, or a line that forms the boundary between the land and the ocean or a lake. A precise line that can be called a coastline cannot be determined due to the coastline paradox.. The term coastal zone is a region where interaction of the sea and land processes occurs.

This book describes critical environmental issues that face coastal ocean and Great Lakes areas, including eutrophication, habitat modification, hydrologic and hydrodynamic disruption, exploitation of resources, toxic effects on ecosystems and humans, introduction of nonindigenous species, global climate change and variability, and shoreline erosion and hazardous storms.
The NRC Committee to Identify High-Priority Science to Meet National Coastal Needs had the broad charge of conducting an independent assessment of priorities for coastal science related to two principal issues being addressed by the Water Subcommittee: (1) water quantity and allocation and (2) ecosystem integrity.

This is particularly true for marine and coastal ES, where there is a lack of spatially explicit information added to the difficulty of quantifying ecosystem functions and processes, and the high-levels of multi-functionality, connectivity, and interactions that occur in marine coastal systems .Cited by: The National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science deliver ecosystem science solutions to sustain thriving coastal communities and economies.

Washington, D.C.: National Academy Press, In the view of the committee, particularly high priorities for coastal science are: the development of indicators of biological status and processes, reflecting ecosystem health and integrity; the use of advanced in situ observation systems coupled with the applica- Page This book applies the ‘ecosystem services’ framework to coastal environments, showing how it could facilitate an adaptive management strategy.
The contributors describe a decision support system (DSS) based on the 3 Ps – pluralism, pragmatism and precaution – that leads to a more flexible, ‘learn. The comprehensive assessment of coastal ecosystems is highlighted as one of the most important parts of coastal EBM that must be addressed with some urgency (Jeftic,Nobre et al., ).
Comprehensive assessment of coastal ecosystems includes structure analysis, function evaluation and the assessment of ecosystem health or by: 8. Introduction. Marine ecosystems provide a broad range of crucial economic, societal, and environmental services to condition of these ecosystems and the services they provide have been influenced by a variety of natural and human-based processes and activities for centuries.These activities (e.g., fisheries, energy exploration, shipping, tourism and recreation, and coastal Cited by: 3.

The five major land habitats include deciduous forest, coniferous forest, savanna, tropical rain forest, desert, and tundra.
And there are water habitats as well. Use these books to talk about the differences between habitats and ecosystems, who lives where, and so forth. Coastal ecosystems, which lie at the interface between marine and terrestrial ecosystems and provide an array of ecosystem services to different groups, aptly illustrate these challenges.

The first book on Mesophotic Coral Ecosystems has been published by Springer. NCCOS staff played a critical role in its development, and served as a member of the editorial team.
The book provides the first comprehensive synthesis of the state of knowledge about mesophotic coral ecosystems worldwide, their geographical variations; similarities and differences between mesophotic.

This book summarizes what is known about mesophotic coral ecosystems (MCEs) geographically and by major taxa. MCEs are characterized by light-dependent corals and associated communities typically found at depths ranging from m and extending to over m in tropical and subtropical ecosystems.
They are populated with organisms typically associated with shallow coral reefs. Coastal marine ecosystems are sensitive to anthropogenic stressors and environmental change. The Chinese Government proposed an ecosystem-based marine spatial planning scheme called the “Marine Ecological Red Line” (MERL), aimed at protecting ecologically sensitive areas.
The assessment and mapping of ecosystem sensitivity provide important tools for regional MERL and setting conservation Author: Wenjia Hu, Weiwei Yu, Zhiyuan Ma, Guanqiong Ye, Ersha Dang, Hao Huang, Dian Zhang, Bin Chen.
