3.3.3 Subject Area Research

Small area studies (temporal, typological or spatial) have been undertaken around Scotland’s shoreline and the following provides a flavour of the variety of different subjects covered, which reflect particular aspects of this environment and the specific issues that can be taken from this research and fed into the research framework. The range and breadth of research is vast and this alone poses an issue for gathering all sources together. If we look at some of the individual topics researched we can audit their approaches, assess the results and then begin to define gaps in our knowledge, which could be either real or as a result of project bias.
