This volume seeks to provide the reader with a clear understanding to the way that protected areas are created, listed and managed in international law. In doing so, it provides a complete overview of the primary international and regional conventions in this area, and the decisions and resolutions that have come from them. In doing so, it provides a comprehensive examination of, inter alia, the World Heritage Convention, the Man and the Biosphere regime, the Ramsar (Wetlands) Treaty, and the Convention on Migratory Species. It also deals extensively with the important regional conventions in this area, covering Europe, Africa and the Americas. The regimes governing international maritime protected areas, and Antarctica, are also dealt with. In each area, the values, selection considerations, management, and compliance considerations are examined in detail and linked into recognizable examples from well known protected sites of international significance.
