       海岸带环境承载力是海岸带可持续发展研究的重要内容,也是进行海岸带可持续发展评价的重要基础。
       近年来我国新一轮沿海区域发展战略不断上升为国家战略,海岸带环境系统压力趋大,以海岸带环境承载力评判断沿海地区发展的可持续性成为海岸带研究首要关注的问题.本研究在分析海岸带环境承载力基本内涵和特征的基础上,将海岸带生态服务功能纳入指标体系,构建了由产业、人口、经济、岸线、滩涂、主要水污染物、典型生态敏感区等七大要素指标层组成的海岸带环境承载力评价指标体系,该指标层能较好地反映未来产业发展的增长变量和海岸带环境系统关键限制因素的定量或半定量关系.并提出指标量化方法和综合承载力定量评价方法,对未来规划情景的海岸带环境承载状况进行评价,为国家海岸带发展战略的制定和实施提供科学的依据。

摘要: Habitat structure and complexity influence the structuring and functioning of fish communities. Habitat changes are one of the main pressures affecting estuarine systems worldwide, yet the degree and rate of change and its impact on fish communities is still poorly understood. In order to quantify historical modifications in habitat structure, an ecohydrological classification system using physiotopes, i.e. units with homogenous abiotic characteristics, was developed for the lower Lima estuary (NW Portugal). Field data, aerial imagery, historical maps and interpolation methods were used to map input variables, including bathymetry, substratum (hard/soft), sediment composition, hydrodynamics (current velocity) and vegetation coverage. Physiotopes were then mapped for the years of 1933 and 2013 and the areas lost and gained over the 80 years were quantified. The implications of changes for the benthic and demersal fish communities using the lower estuary were estimated using the attractiveness to those communities of each physiotope, while considering the main estuarine habitat functions for fish, namely spawning, nursery, feeding and refuge areas and migratory routes. The lower estuary was highly affected due to urbanisation and development and, following a port/harbour expansion, its boundary moved seaward causing an increase in total area. Modifications led to the loss of most of its sandy and saltmarsh intertidal physiotopes, which were replaced by deeper subtidal physiotopes. The most attractive physiotopes for fish (defined as the way in which they supported the fish ecological features) decreased in area while less attractive ones increased, producing an overall lower attractiveness of the studied area in 2013 compared to 1933. The implications of habitat alterations for the fish using the estuary include potential changes in the nursery carrying capacity and the functioning of the fish community. The study also highlighted the poor knowledge of the impacts of habitat changes on fish due to coastal development and urbanisation and emphasises that ecosystem management and conservation will benefit from a wider understanding of habitat functional roles and habitat changes influencing the functioning and structure of the fish communities.
