Tim McClanahan is a Senior Conservation Zoologist at the Wildlife Conservation Society. His science and conservation work focuses on tropical fisheries, climate change, ecology, and management of coral reefs. Joshua Cinner is Senior Research Fellow at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University. A human geographer, his research explores how poverty and other socioeconomic conditions influence how people use and govern natural resources.
"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
