The end of empires and the rise of nation-states meant that many of the historical connections around the sea were severed.

In the twentieth century, modernization projects in both the Soviet Union and Turkey led to the sea's environmental degradation and a genuine ecological crisis.

Keywords:   ecology, empires, environment, modernization, nationalism, nation-states, Soviet Union, Turkey
