Historical overfishing and the recent collapse of coastal ecosystems.
Science 293(5530): 629-638. 1 tab. 3 figs. July 27, 2001.
–Discusses the exploitation of Steller's sea cows and Australian dugongs. Estimates that eastern Australia once supported 1 million to 3.6 million dugongs (now reduced to an estimated 14,000), with over 104,000 in Moreton Bay alone (now an estimated 500 only). These historical estimates are considered too high by at least some dugong biologists.
