About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Coastal and Estuarine Studies, Volume 41.

Mangrove forests are a dominant feature of tropical coasts. Like their terrestrial counterparts these forests are under threat worldwide through a variety of destructive human practices.
