Mangroves, seagrass meadows, and salt marshes, collectively termed "Blue Forests," are counted among the most valuable and productive coastal ecosystems on the planet. A recent literature review of the Blue Forest valuation research identified mangroves as the most frequently analyzed of these ecosystems, yet the literature demonstrates several deficits in terms of geographic location of studies, methods used to value the services, and most notably, a lack of valuation for cultural services. To… 
Ecosystem Services: Delivering Decision-Making for Salt Marshes
Tidal marshes are one of the world’s most economically valuable habitats; yet, they have experienced large and persistent declines globally. Increased knowledge of the ecosystem services delivered by
Managing Mangrove Ecosystem Services for Local Livelihoods and Adaptations in Tanzania
Recognizing the importance of ecosystem services (ES) for peoples' livelihoods and well-being is important for decisionmaking processes on conservation. Mangrove ecosystems in Tanzania are protected
A meta-analysis of the ecological and economic outcomes of mangrove restoration
TLDR
The results suggest that mangrove restoration has substantial potential to contribute to multiple policy objectives related to biodiversity conservation, climate change mitigation and sustainable development.
Sedimentation as a Support Ecosystem Service in Different Ecological Types of Mangroves
Mangrove vegetation is strongly dependent on the climate, the physicochemical variables of the sediment, and the hydrological dynamics. These drivers regulate the distribution of different mangrove

Ecosystem Service Valuations of Mangrove Ecosystems to Inform Decision Making and Future Valuation Exercises
TLDR
An expert-based participatory approach to valuation is used to identify, categorize and rank the various ecosystem services provided by mangrove ecosystems at a global scale, indicating that the scope of valuation of ecosystem services needs to be broadened.
Identifying ecosystem services using multiple methods: Lessons from the mangrove wetlands of Yucatan, Mexico
The failure to properly account forthe total value of environmental and natural resourcesresults in socially undesirable overexploitation anddegradation of complex ecosystems such as
Prioritising Mangrove Ecosystem Services Results in Spatially Variable Management Priorities
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, although priority mangrove areas (top 20%) for each service can be managed at relatively low opportunity costs, prioritising for a single service yields relatively low co-benefits due to limited geographical overlap with priority areas for other services.
Habitat Scale Mapping of Fisheries Ecosystem Service Values in Estuaries
Little is known about the variability of ecosystem service values at spatial scales most relevant to local decision makers. Competing definitions of ecosystem services, the paucity of ecological and
The value of estuarine and coastal ecosystem services
The global decline in estuarine and coastal ecosystems (ECEs) is affecting a number of critical benefits, or ecosystem services. We review the main ecological services across a variety of ECEs,
The Economic Value of Mangroves: A Meta-Analysis
This paper presents a synthesis of the mangrove ecosystem valuation literature through a meta-regression analysis. The main contribution of this study is that it is the first meta-analysis focusing
