Reviews

"While this book has the magic words "climate change" in its subtitle, many of the issues it addresses would be critical even if global temperatures were static or cooling. McClanahan and Cinner focus "on the local and regional impacts of climate change to coastal ecosystems and societies..". Their concern and thorough research of these issues is the strength of their book." -- Natural Hazards Observer "While this book has the magic words "climate change" in its subtitle, many of the issues it addresses would be critical even if global temperatures were static or cooling.
