A large multi-disciplinary project was conducted to determine the effects of climate variation and human impact on the structure and functioning of New Zealand marine shelf ecosystems over the timescale of human occupation in New Zealand from about AD 1250 to the present day. This report summarises and synthesises the 18 contributing reports to describe the major changes to New Zealand marine ecosystems over the time period and discuss the overall implications of the results for marine conservation and management.
