Rodrigo Menafra, Lorena Rodríguez-Gallego, Fabrizio Scarabino &  Daniel Conde (Eds.) 2006. Vida Silvestre, Montevideo, Uruguay. 2006. ISBN 9974-7589-2-0 (Spanish edition). i-xiv+668 p. $U 450 (~ US$ 19) (paperback).

“Bases para la conservación y el manejo de la costa uruguaya” (“Basis for conservation and management of the Uruguayan coast”) is an initiative of VIDA SILVESTRE URUGUAY, a non-governmental organization (NGO) created in 1995, whose primary mission is working for nature conservation in Uruguay.

This book includes 63 scientific papers of more than 150 local researchers, about the ecosystems of the Uruguayan Platense and Atlantic coasts, making available to scientists, managers and ecologically concerned people, crucial information of the region.

At the same time, this material contributes with new concepts and points of view in relation with priorities and perspectives for the conservation and management of the coastal zone. It covers biological, geological, palaeontological and archaeological patrimony of this coastal zone, from plankton ecology to fisheries resources’ biology and management, from pollution to participative coastal zone management.

The book is timely, as it provides meaningful information on the environment, biodiversity and resources’ biology, that may surely contribute for regional management strategies and ecosystem conservation.
