In this paper we describe the construction of an online GIS database system, hosted by WorldFish, which stores bio-physical, ecological and socio-economic data for the 'Coral Triangle Area' in South-east Asia and the Pacific. The database has been built in partnership with all six (Timor-Leste, Malaysia, Indonesia, The Philippines, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea) of the Coral Triangle countries, and represents a valuable source of information for natural resource managers at the regional scale. Its utility is demonstrated using biophysical data, data summarising marine habitats, and data describing the extent of marine protected areas in the region. © 2014 Cros et al.

The evolutionary record from previous climate perturbations indicates that marine mammals are highly vulnerable but also remarkably adaptable to climatic change in coastal ecosystems. Consequently, national parks in the Pacific, from Alaska to Hawaii, are faced with potentially dramatic changes in their marine mammal fauna, especially pinnipeds (seals and sea lions). Impacts of climate change on pinnipeds may be manifest in changes in sea temperature, sea level, incidence of storm surge, ocean acidification, loss of glacial ice, and alterations in oceanic processes such as the frequency of El Niño events. These potential changes portend challenges to park management in responding to loss of habitat, mass strandings of sick or dead pinnipeds, alterations in prey availability, or range shifts with species expanding into or contracting out of national parks. The National Park Service could benefit from a regional approach to guide parks with a suite of actions to help conserve pinniped populations in response to climate change: (1) increased information and modeling to forecast pinniped habitat at risk, (2) increased protection via designation of marine protected areas, (3) restoration of degraded habitat, and (4) communication with the public. Since parks are islands in a larger seascape, coordination with other agencies and groups that also manage for pinniped conservation is essential.

Relationships between six calcifying plankton groups and pH are explored in a highly biologically productive and data-rich area of the central North Sea using time-series datasets. The long-term trends show that abundances of foraminiferans, coccolithophores, and echinoderm larvae have risen over the last few decades while the abundances of bivalves and pteropods have declined. Despite good coverage of pH data for the study area there is uncertainty over the quality of this historical dataset; pH appears to have been declining since the mid 1990s but there was no statistical connection between the abundance of the calcifying plankton and the pH trends. If there are any effects of pH on calcifying plankton in the North Sea they appear to be masked by the combined effects of other climatic (e.g. temperature), chemical (nutrient concentrations) and biotic (predation) drivers. Certain calcified plankton have proliferated in the central North Sea, and are tolerant of changes in pH that have occurred since the 1950s but bivalve larvae and pteropods have declined. An improved monitoring programme is required as ocean acidification may be occurring at a rate that will exceed the environmental niches of numerous planktonic taxa, testing their capacities for acclimation and genetic adaptation. © 2013 Beare et al.

Biomass stocks and their spatial distribution remain poorly understood in tropical forests and reliable estimations are critical in the calculations of carbon stocks and fluxes. This report aims to estimate and contrast aboveground biomass (AGB) stocks in tropical forests of Mexico (classified as dry, moist and rainy) by employing three different evaluation techniques. The first method uses a simple mean biomass density value per each forest class multiplied by the area of each forest. The second approach improves the spatial resolution by classifiying forests per each region and a mean biomass density is multiplied by the area of each forest class. The third methodology calculates biomass stocks by developing an empirical model using mean annual precipitation as the independent variable and then applying the equation to the mean annual rainfall of each tropical forest times the area of the forest. Results showed that all three methods of AGB stock estimations are quite consistent since they have mean (confidence interval) values of 3.0 (0.69), 3.0 (0.30), and 2.25 (0.67) Pg estimated by first, second and third approaches, respectively. Deviations between evaluation methodologies did not surpass 0.45 Pg or 16% of the mean AGB stock. Using all three statistics, mean (confidence interval) aboveground biomass stocks for Mexican tropical forests is 2.77 (0.56) Pg. This statistic deviates by more than one order of magnitude when contrasting it with other six independent AGB estimates. However, the mean figure reported in this study or a mean AGB calculated across all estimation methods provides a dataset that is important for conducting carbon stocks and fluxes for Mexican tropical forests.
