Mangroves—Living on the Edge in a Changing Climate offers readers of all ages a fascinating journey through the inner worlds of the mangroves. Intricate adaptations and unexpected habitats emerge from the pages of the swamp, unsettling the reader into realizing the incredible value of this island ecosystem.
Mangroves provide many resources for local communities, and help reduce global warming by storing more carbon in the soil and its trees than other comparable ecosystems. This book also explains climate change, and how communities can help protect mangroves from climate change impacts such as rising sea levels.
