Mangrove forests occurring at the interface of terrestrial and marine ecosystems represent a rich biological diversity of plants, animals and microorganisms. Microbes, being an important component of the mangrove environment, not only play a very critical role in creating and maintaining this biosphere but also serve as a source of biotechnologically valuable and important products. By participating in various steps of decomposition and mineralization of leaf litter, microbes make an essential…

Diversity and Biotechnological Potential of Endophytic Microorganisms Associated with Tropical Mangrove Forests
TLDR
The great biodiversity observed in the mangrove ecosystem reinforces the importance of studying endophytic microorganisms, particularly the isolation of new compounds.
Biotechnological potentials of halotolerant and halophilic bacteria from mangrove ecosystems
TLDR
The present chapter highlights the biodiversity of saline microorganisms, particularly halophilic and halotolerant bacteria, in different mangrove ecosystems and discusses their biotechnological potentials as reported in published papers.
Cyanobacteria in mangrove ecosystems
TLDR
The relevance of cyanobacteria for mangrove conservation is highlighted in their use for the recovery of degraded mangroves as biostimulants or in bioremediation.
Isolation and enzyme bioprospection of endophytic bacteria associated with plants of Brazilian mangrove ecosystem
TLDR
This is the first reported diversity analysis performed on endophytic bacteria obtained from the branches of mangrove trees and the first overview of the specific enzymes produced by different bacterial genera.
Comparative metagenomics study reveals pollution induced changes of microbial genes in mangrove sediments
TLDR
Investigating the metabolic capacity of microorganisms in contaminated (CMS) and pristine (PMS) mangrove sediments at subtropical and tropical coastal sites found that the former had a reduced diazotroph abundance and nitrogen fixing capability, but an enhanced metabolism that is related to the generation of microbial greenhouse gases via increased methanogenesis and sulfate reduction.
Invited Review: Biodeviersity of Plant Polysaccharide-Degrading Bacteria in Mangrove Ecosystem Author:
The mangrove ecosystem is the most productive environment and represent a rich biological diversity including microorganisms. Plant polysaccharides, such as cellulose, hemicellulose and pectin are
Enzymes from mangrove endophytes and their biotechnological/industrial applications
TLDR
It can be rightly said that mangroves are the abode for microorganisms with promising enzymatic activities, and more detailed studies on this arena need to be precised and systematic so that the authors can benefit from such natural products for future biotechnological advancement in enzymology.
