Ocean solutions for a sustainable, healthy and inclusive future
Many issues afflict the ocean, such as loss of biodiversity, overexploitation, acidification, warming and increasing pollution. Recognizing the scope and urgency of this problem, PLOS Biology has developed a new collection of articles under the theme "Ocean solutions for a sustainable, healthy and inclusive future." The collection explores potential solutions to mitigate the impacts of human activity on ocean ecosystems to minimize or reverse degradation, paving the way for the sustainable use of marine resources. Articles highlight some of the key research priorities on mitigation of the anthropogenic effects on the oceans. The image shows waves lapping the shoreline at dawn in South Africa.
