Abstract
    This volume of the Unesco reports in marine science primarily describes the special sessions that were organized by Unesco/IOC at the XVth Pacific science congress (Dunedin, New Zealand, 1-11 February 1983). These sessions dealt with resource management and conservation, primary and secondary productivity, nutrition, growth and physiology of marine organisms, remote sensing and oceanography and future marine science cooperation in the Pacific. Research projects were proposed for joint implementation by different Unesco/IOC member states in the Pacific on primary, consequent and related productivity of mangrove sites; effects of atolls and seamounts on productivity of ocean waters; assessment of black coral resources; and environmental risks from shoreline development. Projects involving exchange of scientists and information were proposed together with components involving training and education in marine sciences. Papers were invited and presented on island mass effects, remote sensing, coral reef and mangrove productivity.
