Seascape studies have developed in response to questions arising from composite correlations such as coastal, island and marine research, sea ecology and social requirements, landscape design and planning, environment and resource management. This global volume is the first comprehensive overview to provide a solid foundation on the concept of seascape, with the latest research findings from leading experts across a variety of fields, offering a holistic approach to seascape linking nature with culture, and theory with practice. Divided into six parts, Seascape and Nature; Seascape and People; Seascape Character; Seascape Design and Planning; Seascape Policy, Management and Governance; and Seascape Futures, it includes over thirty chapters from contributors around the world. Pioneering methods with illustrated case studies in the Mediterranean, Scandinavia, North Sea, North America and Asia, serve as examples for future seascape development, conservation and governance. An important and extremely timely resource, the Routledge Handbook of Seascapes provides academics, practitioners, NGOs, consultants and government officials with a broad overview of current research and practice for future application and advance worldwide.
