Mangrove forests and associated gei wai (excavated ponds used for shrimp and fish farming) provide important ecosystem services in Shenzhen Bay. Much of the mangrove and gei wai wetlands, however, have been lost because of intensified human activities in the past 30 years. Using five-phase remote-sensing images, we describe the recent history of the spatial–temporal dynamics for the wetlands in the bay. From 1986 to 2007, mangrove area increased from 1.8 to 4.8 km2, while the area of gei wai… 
Evaluating the Effectiveness of Conservation on Mangroves: A Remote Sensing-Based Comparison for Two Adjacent Protected Areas in Shenzhen and Hong Kong, China
It is concluded that the mangroves in the MPMNR were more effectively protected than those in the FMNNR, and may provide assistance to the formulation of generally accepted criteria for remote sensing-based evaluation of conservation effectiveness.
Mangrove Forest Restoration and Rehabilitation
We analyzed current best practices and recommendations used in the implementation of mangrove rehabilitation and restoration (R/R) projects in the Atlantic-East Pacific (AEP) and the Indo-West
A review on the application of remote sensing in mangrove ecosystem monitoring
Mangrove trees form a community of woody plants in intertidal areas periodically immersed by sea water,and are located in tropical and sub-tropical zones.Mangrove forests are complicated ecological
Ecological Landscape Planning and Design Strategies for Mangrove Communities (Hara Forests) in South-Pars Special Economic Energy Zone, Asalouyeh- Iran
Along with the strategic role of Asalouyeh region as an industrial zone in recent decades, there have been some growing problems regarding the ecosystems of the region due to the heavy activities
Modeling of freshwater wetland management strategies for building the public awareness at local level in Bangladesh
Bangladesh has a large aerial extent of freshwater wetlands for her deltaic characteristics. In 1970, the total area of wetlands in Bangladesh is estimated to be 70000–80000 km2, approximately, i.e.,
Land use Change Impacts on Heavy Metal Sedimentation in Mangrove Wetlands—A Case Study in Dongzhai Harbor of Hainan, China
When human activities change land use patterns, many environment elements are being changed accordingly. Well understanding the links between various changes could help to achieve ecological
Effects of mangrove forest on the biodiversity of macrobenthos under the condition of severe water pollution
Although it is clear that mangrove (MG) forests have a positive effect on macrobenthos diversity in wetland ecosystems, these effects are not very clear under the condition of severe water pollution.
Dynamics in mangroves assessed by high-resolution and multi-temporal satellite data: a case study in Zhanjiang Mangrove National Nature Reserve (ZMNNR), P. R. China
Mangrove forests are declining across the globe, mainly because of human intervention, and therefore require an evaluation of their past and present status (e.g. areal extent, species-level
Plantation Methods and Restoration Techniques for Enhanced Blue Carbon Sequestration by Mangroves
Global warming and associated climate change is one of the focal environmental problems of this decade. So, Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) initiatives focuses on
Spatial ecology of little egret (Egretta garzetta) in Hong Kong uncovers preference for commercial fishponds
The results highlight the significant role of commercial fishponds, providing a feeding ground for little egrets, and underscore the importance of maintaining a diversity of wetland types as alternative foraging and breeding habitats.


The mangrove wetland resources and their conservation in China
Mangrove wetlands are evergreen tree and shrub communities mainly consisting of mangrove plants, usually growing on the upper part of tidal flat of tropical and subtropical coasts, and periodically
Mangrove Wetland Changes in the Pearl River Estuary Using Remote Sensing
