TITLE: Manual for mangrove monitoring in the Pacific Islands region / Joanna C. Ellison....[et. al].
AUTHOR: Ellison, Joanna C.
PUBLISHED: Apia, Samoa : Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), 2012.
DESCRIPTION: 52 p. : col. ill. : 29 cm.
NOTES: "This monitoring protocol adapts internationally accepted mangrove monitoring methods to Pacific Island settings, with three levels of intensity of monitoring. The methods will generate baseline survey data that can be used to monitor changes and make comparisons across mangrove areas in the wider Pacific. This will be a tool in improving mangrove management, augmenting or restoring a mangrove conservation ethic, and reversal of trends in human-caused degradation of mangroves"--Publisher website. Mangrove forests occur on low energy, sedimentary shorelines of the tropics, between mean tide and high tide elevations. Mangrove trees have physiological and morphological adaptations to the environmental stresses of their intertidal habitat, of high salinity, low oxygen, poor nutrient availability and substrate mobility. These cause the different mangrove species to prefer a particular elevation between mean tide and high tide (Figure 1). True mangrove species occur exclusively in this saline wetland environment, with adaptations such as aerial roots, halophytic strategies.
