Mangroves are considered the “wonder flora” distributed in the tropics, subtropics, and warm temperate latitudes. Aside from protecting the coastal marine communities, mangroves also serve as a haven for aquatic and terrestrial fauna, actively participate in energy dynamics, recycle nutrients, filter waste, and support the livelihood of coastal communities. This makes the mangrove ecosystem crucial to the well-being of the planet. This book, written by experts, provides invaluable insights into mangroves of the Niger Delta, the relationship between mangrove recruitment and thrombolytic development, deforestation and sustainability, mangrove health assessment, ecosystem-based coastal protection, and conservation through ecotourism. This book on mangrove biology, ecosystem, and conservation is an invaluable resource for every mangrove enthusiast.
