The mangrove, seagrass and coral reef ecosystems are of paramount ecological importance but have already undergone great degradation, which is advancing at an alarming rate.

If present trends continue, the natural resource basis of the economy and ecology of tropical coastal regions will soon be ruined. The Ecology of Mangrove and Related Ecosystems by Victor Jaccarini,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

Mangrove Ecosystem Ecology and Function deals with several aspects of mangrove science, as well as conservation, management, and related policies. The book is divided into six sections and structured into 10 chapters. The first section discusses mangrove ecology, structure, and function; the second section explains mangrove physiology related to salt accumulation; the third Author: Sahadev Sharma.

Mangroves: Ecology, Biology and Taxonomy presents topical research from across the globe in the study of mangroves, including the eco-biology of mangroves, the mangrove ecosystem of Sundarbans, mangrove wetland ecosystem modelling in the Everglades and the microbial diversity from mangrove sediments.

Contents. Mangrove research has increased over time around the world in all kind of research areas. From results, it is confirmed that mangrove research is increasing exponentially around the globe. Also number of mangrove researcher is also increasing in the world. There was a time when very few researchers were involved in mangrove forest-related : Sahadev Sharma.

The ecology and ecosystems of shore and tidal flats, mangroves, estuaries and soft bottom shores, caves, small islands, grasslands and savannas are decribed. The forest ecosystems with beach forest, tropical lowland evergreen rainforest, some special forest systems and mountain forests form the contents of chapter IV.

An introduction establishes the unique ties between agricultural and ecological sciences. The second section describes the community ecology of these sorts of ecosystems, while the final section focuses on the.
