Synopsis

Man and the Maritime Environment is the ninth volume to be published in the now well-established series Exeter Maritime Studies which aims to investigate and interpret not only the British maritime past but also the European and international topics from the earliest times to the contemporary world. The nine original papers in this volume, all by established scholars, consist of a cross-disciplinary set of essays which explore aspects of man's involvement with the sea as an environment. The book deals with the development of British and United States marine science, including the effects of changing climate on marine life; with nineteenth-century sailing-ship seafarers and tier essentially non-depredatory relationship with the sea creatures they encountered; and with the relationship of man with the coastal marine environment and the apparently inevitable spoliation of that environment by the success of the seaside tourist industry.

Stephen Fisher until his recent retirement was General Editor of Exeter Maritime Studies; he is now an Honorary Research Fellow in the Exeter Centre for Maritime Historical Studies.
