Mangrove Management & Conservation

The term mangrove is typically used to describe plants in the intertidal zone in tropical and subtropical regions. This collection of papers discusses mangrove ecosystems, which provide a rich habitat and breeding ground for a wide range of terrestrial and aquatic species. Degradation and destruction of mangrove forests is increasing in both tropical and subtropical zones. Rather than focusing strictly on the science, these essays discuss the pollution status of mangrove forests, how the resources are used, and what policies and management strategies can be put in place to make these forests sustainable.
