Significance of Interdisciplinary Studies
A special issue of Nature, a prestigious scientific journal, highlights interdisciplinary research activities aimed at better understanding the world’s most challenging issues.
"The challenges we face in the stewardship of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes lie not only within the ecosystems themselves, but also in the laws, authorities, and governance structures intended to manage our use and conservation of them."
- The White House Council on Environmental Quality, The Interagency of Ocean Policy Task Force
