A littoral and sublittoral marine monitoring programme has been underway in the Isles of Scilly and Lundy since 1984. It was set up by the Nature Conservancy Council to provide information on important marine habitats, long term changes in community structure and the life history (particularly longevity and growth rates) and the ecology of species of high nature conservation interest. This information was needed to determine management requirements within these two proposed Marine Nature Reserves. Annual monitoring was continued at both sites until 1991. This volume reported on a desk study carried out under contract to English Nature to assess the results of the monitoring programme up to 1991 and considered the most appropriate means and methods of continuing the project. This was required to contribute to the management of Lundy Marine Nature Reserve and the development of an effective marine monitoring strategy for England.
