TOP REVIEWS FROM LARGE MARINE ECOSYSTEMS: ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT
Not only was this an incredibly informative course but it gives me hope about the future of our oceans. It's exciting to hear about all of the collaborative work going on within and between nations.
This course deepened my understanding of large marine ecosystems, how they should be assessed and the best practices/strategies that should be implemented in order to successfully manage them.
This is an interactive course. Those are highly recommended to whom are related to the management of marine ecosystem.
Professor Moloney & Dr. Sherman made a truly eye-opening course. Short enough to fit into most schedules, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Highly recommend.
