Prof. Gownaris publishes paper on Marine Protected Areas!

Congratulations to Prof. Gownaris!
Check out this cool paper on Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) that she is first author on and that just got published in Frontiers in Marine Ecology: www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmars.2019.00650/full
Tasha explains: “The paper was motivated by a conference in Rome, where policymakers asked which of the many maps on marine priority regions they should look to for siting new MPAs. This question is timely given that we are coming up on the ‘deadline’ of the targets to have 10% of the ocean protected by 2020 (Aichi 11 and SDG 14) and the targets moving forward are likely to be closer to 30% of the ocean.”
