Plant growth-promoting bacteria: a potential tool for arid mangrove reforestation

  title={Plant growth-promoting bacteria: a potential tool for arid mangrove reforestation},
  author={Yoav B. Bashan and G. J. E. Holguin},
Although a few countries protect mangroves (USA, some states in Mexico), the systematic destruction of these ecosystems is increasing. Deforestation of mangrove communities is thought to be one of the major reasons for the decline in coastal fisheries of many tropical and subtropical countries. Although mangroves in the tropics can regenerate themselves or be restored using low-technology propagule planting, arid mangroves (areas having limited or no access to fresh water) can seldom regenerate… CONTINUE READING
