description The 'World Mangrove Atlas' is the first significant attempt to provide an overview of the distribution of mangroves worldwide. Mapped data have been gathered from a wide range of sources and have been synthesised into a series of twenty-five regional maps. Related texts describe the species, areal extent and other summary information on the currently known status of mangroves in each country. This is the first time that such data have been gathered into a single volume. All data are referenced back to an original source. For people interested in the extent and dynamics of mangroves, this atlas provides a well documented foundation from which to start their explorations.

A number of case studies demonstrate what can be achieved using greater resolution and much more detailded investigation. The case studies show mangroves growing in very different conditions such as estuaries, deltas, lagoons, wet tropical coasts and arid coasts. They illustrate a range of different mapping techniques and provide detail on some of the issues threatening mangroves worldwide.Together with introductory chapters covering mapping techniques and mangrove phytogeography, the result is a wide-ranging but highly informative reference work.

Mangrove ecosystems are of great environmental and economic importance. However, mangrove forests in many countries are threatened and vast areas have already disappeared. The 'World Mangrove Atlas' presents a baseline inventory of mangroves at the end of the twentieth century. It is intended for use by scientists, politicinas, planners, conservationists and others, who have an interest in the current status and future of mangroves.

The 'World Mangrove Atlas' is part of a trilogy being produced by the International Society for Mangrove Ecosystems and the International Tropical Timber Organization to promote awareness of the importance of mangroves. The other two parts of the trilogy are: 'Journey Amongst Mangroves' and 'Restorations of Mangrove Ecosystems'.
