#55-Research & Monitoring of NERRS Aquatic Ecosystems (2008) [Kennish]
-The National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) is a network of 27 areas representing different biogeographic regions of the United States that are protected for long-term research, water-quality monitoring, education outreach, and coastal stewardship. Established by the Coastal Zone Management Act in 1972, as amended, the reserve system is a partnership program between the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the coastal states of the U.S. This JCR Special Issue, which is a follow up to JCR Special Issue #45, presents an addition collection of research papers that fall under the purview of NERRS in order to address national resource management issues, such as non-point source pollution, habitat restoration, and invasive species. Dr. Michael J. Kennish, research coordinator of the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve, served as the guest editor on this very informative Special Issue.
