Summary Jacques offers a unique analysis of the connections between global marine and atmospheric conditions to global political phenomena. He shows how human survival is intricately linked to the sustainability of the world ocean, a singular connected body of regional oceans. Jacques suggests how we can synthesize and coordinate global ecological information to avoid current crises including declining global fisheries, coral reef losses, and climate change. His book will be a valuable resource for researchers and students in environmental studies, marine sciences, and globalization studies
