This mission statement will be only too familiar to many of today’s researchers and the vision of scientific endeavour and international co-operation presented in the contemporary reports, newsletters and briefings of the IBP are staggering by today’s standards. 1 shows a list of just the shallow-water marine environments formally under the IBP banner. Acknowledging the need for a social dimension in ecosystem research was also anticipated by the IBP through its Human Adaptability section (Collins and Weiner, 1977), although, disappointingly, this soon became restricted to physiological aspects of health (Weiner and Lourie, 1969), despite pleas for a much broader social science research agenda (see Raffaelli and Frid, 2010).
