In the coming weeks will be publishing a weekly video, shot by, edited and narrated by Josh Jensen from Undersea Productions. In this episode we'll detour away from coral reefs and explore some different habitats.
Rarely dived and often abused, the mangroves and seagrass protect the ocean and land from each other. Both habitats also contain some pretty interesting specialist critters as you'll see..

Using a global range of examples and case studies, it describes the unique adaptations of these plants to their exacting environments; the rich and diverse communities of organisms that depend on mangrove forests and seagrass meadows including tree-climbing shrimps, synchronously flashing fireflies, and 'gardening' seacows ; the links between mangrove, seagrass, and other habitats; and the evolution, biodiversity, and biogeography of mangroves and seagrasses. The economic value of mangroves and seagrasses is also discussed, including approaches to rational management of these vital resources and techniques for the restoration of degraded habitats.
A final chapter, new to this edition, examines the potential effects of global climate change including sea level rise.
grankanviacong.tk As with other titles in the Biology of Habitats Series, particular emphasis is placed on the organisms that dominate these fascinating aquatic ecosystems although pollution, conservation, and experimental aspects are also considered. This accessible textbook assumes no previous knowledge of mangrove or seagrass ecology and is intended for senior undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professional ecologists, conservation practitioners, and resource managers.
