DETECTING VISITOR IMPACTS IN AND AROUND AQUATIC ECOSYSTEMS WITHIN PROTECTED AREAS

In this study, we sought to evaluate: a) the range of activities undertaken by visitors to aquatic ecosystems and the likely ecological consequences of those activities, and b) the sensitivity and scale of response of existing aquatic indicators. By combining these two evaluations, we collated a list of aquatic indicators that might be responsive to the spatial and temporal disturbances associated with visitor activities in particular, and as such, might show considerable promise in being further developed and implemented in monitoring and assessment programs within protected areas.
