The Botany of Mangroves, Hardback Book



Mangroves are distinctive tropical plant communities that occupy the intertidal zone between sea and land.

They are of major ecological importance, have economic value as a source of food and raw materials, and serve as a buffer from flooding and climate change-induced sea level rise.

Mangroves are under threat from pollution, clearance and over-exploitation, and increasing concern has driven demand for an improved understanding of mangrove species.

This book provides an introduction to mangroves, including their taxonomy, habitat-specific features, reproduction and socio-economic value.

Fully updated to reflect the last two decades of research, this new edition of a key text includes newly documented taxa, new understandings of vivipary and the evolution of mangrove species, and a rich set of colour illustrations.

It will appeal to researchers and students across a range of disciplines, including botany, ecology and zoology.
