Mangrove ecosystems in the tropical and subtropical coastal areas are vulnerable due to various physical and human factors. It is difficult to quantify the economic value of the mangroves as they provide a wide range of ecosystem services. The value, as well as threats and conservation and restoration of mangroves, are well described in the book with appropriate examples along with illustrations while paying much attention to biology and physiology of mangroves. Those who have an interest in mangrove ecosystems can refer to this book as well as academic reading material. In addition, this book fills the gap as it is difficult to find books written in English in Sri Lanka, particularly focusing on biology and physiology of mangroves and other topics addressed in this book.
