Abstract. Mangrove communities are recognized as highly productive ecosystems that provide large quantities of organic matter to adjacent coastal waters in the form of detritus and live animals (fish, shellfish). The detritus serves as a nutrient source and is the base of an extensive food web in which organisms of commercial importance take part. In addition, mangrove ecosystems serve as shelter, feeding, and breeding zones for crustaceans, mollusks, fish of commercial importance, and resident…

An Overview of Crustacean Diversity in Mangrove Ecosystem
Mangrove forests are the protective barrier of coastal inhabitants against natural calamities and prevent soil erosion protecting the land behind. These typical ecosystems provide areas for breeding,
Relevance of mangroves for the production and deposition of organic matter along tropical continental margins
TLDR
This paper assesses the relevance of mangroves for the production and sedimentation of OM in the tropical coastal ocean based on data available from the literature and research results, and estimates the rates of carbon accumulation in mangrove sediments and of carbon export to the coastal seas.
Plant growth-promoting bacteria: a potential tool for arid mangrove reforestation
TLDR
A speculative synthesis of recent work on growth-promoting bacteria proposes that mangrove rhizosphere bacteria be used as a tool to enhance reforestation with mangroves seedlings.
Mangrove Ecosystems and Associated Fauna with Special Reference to Mangrove Crabs in the Philippines: A Review
Mangrove ecosystems are very important because of its many ecological and economic functions. It provides food, shelter, and protection to a myriad of organisms and maintains connectivity with other
Biotechnological aspects of mangrove microorganisms
Abstract Mangrove ecosystems are noteworthy intertidal estuarine wetlands having the two unique components of terrestrial and marine ecosystems along the coastlines. This ecosystem is a carbon sink
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.
Drivers of cyanobacterial diversity and community composition in mangrove soils in south-east Brazil.
TLDR
Assessment of the community structure and ecological drivers that influence the cyanobacterial community harboured in two Brazilian mangrove soils, and the long-term effects of oil contamination on these keystone species, suggests that anthropogenic impacts may also act as ecological filters that select cyanobacteria taxa.
Sensitivity of the mangrove-estuarine microbial community to aquaculture effluent
TLDR
Evaluating the impact of land use change on near-shore biogeochemical cycles and microbial community structures within mangrove-dominated estuaries highlighted the sensitivity of the estuarine-mangrove microbial community, and their ecosystem functions, to land use changes.
Soil organic carbon stabilization mechanisms in a subtropical mangrove and salt marsh ecosystems.
TLDR
This study revealed the occurrence of different SOC stabilization mechanisms between mangroves and salt marshes and may help to make predictions about future SOC dynamics as the different stabilization processes may response to climate change or human activities differently.
Contribution of Microbes in the Renovation of Wetlands
A wetland ecosystem is an important reservoir of microbial diversity and contributes significantly in mitigation of the Greenhouse gas emissions. Increased nitrogen (N) inputs from agriculture and

The undervaluation of natural products and ecological services generated by mangrove ecosystems is a major driving force behind the conversion of this system into alternative uses. This trend of
The influence of forest type on microbial-nutrient relationships in tropical mangrove sediments
TLDR
Correlation analysis supports the notion of nutrient limitation of bacteria and microalgac in mangrove muds, and appears that a close microbe-nutricnt-planl connection serves as a mechanism to conserve scarce nutrients necessary for the existence of these tropical tidal forests.
Soil-plant interactions in a neotropical mangrove forest: iron, phosphorus and sulfur dynamics
TLDR
It is suggested that a plant-soil-microbial feedback contributes to the spatial patterning of vegetation and soil variables across the intertidal zone of many mangrove forest communities.

Keystone species and mangrove forest dynamics: the influence of burrowing by crabs on soil nutrient status and forest productivity
TLDR
It appears that burrowing affects soil aeration which in turn affects the productivity and reproductive output of Rhizophora, and it remains to be seen if the roles played by grapsid crabs are as important elsewhere as in Australia.
Dissolved organic carbon-bacteria interactions at sediment-water interface in a tropical mangrove system
TLDR
It is suggested that the mangrove sediments function as an efficient sink for DOC and that its export from the system is minor.
Mangrove Ecology, Aquatic Primary Productivity, and Fish Community Dynamics in the Teacapan-Agua Brava Lagoon-Estuarine System (Mexican Pacific)
TLDR
Seasonal variations of the above parameters seemed closely related to the ecology of fish populations, and primary productivity and fish community ecology are controlled by habitat char- acteristics, river discharge, and climatic seasonality.

Effect of exported mangrove litter on bacterial productivity and dissolved organic carbon fluxes in adjacent tropical nearshore sediments
TLDR
The results indicate that mangrove litter exported to the adjacent nearshore of this region is highly refractory and of poor nutritional quality, with enhancement of bacterial activity and DOC fluxes apparent only in a semi-enclosed area of highest litter deposition.
Litter dynamics in riverine mangrove forests in the Guayas River estuary, Ecuador
TLDR
Leaf turnover rates based on leaf fall estimates and litter standing crop were 10- to 20-fold higher than estimated from rates of leaf degradation, indicating the significant effect of leaf transport by tides and crabs.
