Effective protection and restoration of marine life requires an understanding of the anthropogenic stressors and natural limiting factors affecting those organisms. In addition, changes in the abundance or distribution of any species affects others in the ecosystem, including the types of changes in habitat that occur when abundance of plant species increases or decreases. These factors are not always considered in management schemes.
