Product Description
The conduct of human activities around deep sea hydrothermal vent ecosystems is largely unregulated and thus inviting researchers to exploit the unique genetic wealth of the abyss. Unregulated and freely accessible resources will suffer from unsustainable use and overexploitation, leading to another "tragedy of the commons". This work will analyse the legal situation regarding human activities and the legal status of the resources by focusing on genetic resources associated with hydrothermal vent ecosystems. The result is, that the resources are freely accessible and that human activities are only slightly regulated. In order to fill the regulatory gap several suggestions for a new regime will be outlined and analysed. Although the focus of this text is on hydrothermal vents, most of the findings can be used for the discussion of conservation and management of other deep sea features such as seamounts, coral reefs and ocean trenches.

#456 Inside a Conservation NGO
This week we take a close look at conservation NGOS: what they do, how they work, and - most importantly - why we need them. We'll be speaking with Shyla Raghav, the Climate Change Lead at Conservation International, about using strategy and policy to tackle climate change. Then we'll speak with Rebecca Shaw, Lead Scientist at the World Wildlife Fund, about how and why you should get involved with conservation initiatives.
