Despite the recent better understanding and awareness of the role of mangroves, these coastal forest communities continue to be destroyed or degraded (or euphemistically reclaimed) at an alarming rate. The figure of 1% per year given by Ong (1982) for Malaysia can be taken as a conservative estimate of destruction of mangroves in the Asia-Pacific region. Whilst the Japanese-based mangrove wood-chips industry continues in its destructive path through the larger mangrove ecosystems of the region… 
This is a review of the mangrove studies conducted in Southeast Asia as a contribution towards better forest conservation.Mangrove forests in southern Thailand have been altered by human activities.
Sustainable utilization and management of Mangrove ecosystems of Malaysia
Mangrove ecosystems of Malaysia are found largely on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, the southern coast of Sarawak and the eastern coast of Sabah. Malaysian mangroves are largely of the
Rapidly diminishing mangrove forests in Myanmar (Burma): a review
Mangroves are a very productive ecosystem found in tropical and subtropical latitudes. Southern and south western coastlines of Myanmar host a large number of mangrove species, many under threat of
The causes of deterioration of Sundarban mangrove forest ecosystem of Bangladesh: conservation and sustainable management issues
The Sundarban forest, located in the southwest of Bangladesh, is one of the largest continuous blocks of mangrove forests in the world. This mangrove forest ecosystem in Bangladesh is now in captious
Mapping and assessment of protection of mangrove habitats in Brazil
This study has mapped mangrove habitat and assessed the protection of this environment across the coastal protected areas with the use of Landsat satellite images integrated with geographic
The loss of species: mangrove extinction risk and failure of critical exosystem services
Across the globe, mangrove species found primarily in the high intertidal and upstream estuarine zones are the most threatened because they are often the first cleared for development of aquaculture and agriculture.
Mangrove Rehabilitation and Intertidal Biodiversity: a Study in the Ranong Mangrove Ecosystem, Thailand
The findings from this study suggest that some of these well represented families of mangrove macrofauna could be used as indicators of ecological change as part of a long term environmental monitoring programme in Ranong and other areas in Southeast Asia where mangroves are being rehabilitated.
Effect of mangroves on distribution, diversity and abundance of molluscs in mangrove ecosystem: a review.
It will be shown that even relatively smallscale modifications to the structure of mangrove ecosystems can lead to significant effects on the diversity and abundance of molluscs in these habitats.
Mangrove forest composition and structure in Las Perlas Archipelago, Pacific Panama.
Examination of the mangrove structure in the two largest islands, Isla del Rey and Isla San Jose, of Las Perlas Archipelago, Pacific Panama indicated that these sites are spatially dynamic and appear to be rejuvenating, although forest structure differed at the three sites, although R1 and R2 were most similar.

An Appraisal of the Economic Potential of Mangrove Swamps
Natural resources have always been in the centre of discussion since time immemorial. They are the basic building blocks of an economy just as amino acids are the basic building blocks of protein.
Recovery of a mixed-species mangrove forest in South Florida following canopy removal
In October 1982, the upper structure and canopy of a 0.09 ha area of mixed species mangrove forest (654 trees) in southeast Florida was removed by tree trimmers. This represented a reduction in mean

Global Sea Level Rise and the Greenhouse Effect: Might They Be Connected?
When the tide gauge data are filtered so as to remove the contribution of ongoing glacial isostatic adjustment to the local sea level trend at each location, then the individual tide gauge records reveal sharply reduced geographic scatter and suggest that there is a globally coherent signal of strength 2.4 � 0.90 millimeters per year that is active in the system.
Sea-level changes during the late Pleistocene and Holocene in the Strait of Malacca
CURRENT concepts of late Pleistocene sea level history, generally referred to the 14C time scale, differ considerably1. Some authors2,3 assume that the sea level at about 30,000 BP was comparable
