From the Publisher'The importance of mangroves is well-known, but never has there been such a comprehensive review of these critical ecosystems. This book should change the way we view, and manage, mangroves for the benefit of coastal peoples and biodiversity world-wide.'
Achim Steiner, Executive Director, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
'I am pleased that ITTO, ISME, and the other members of this excellent partnership have produced such a magnificent reference book. The World Atlas of Mangroves details an incredible variety of useful information that will be of considerable value to forest researchers, practitioners, and students to learn more about mangrove ecosystems.'
Professor Don K. Lee, President, International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO)
'It is indispensable for libraries of universities, technical high-schools or research institutions concerned with any aspect of mangrove and world vegetation and environmental management.'
'In the present state, the atlas is an invaluable sourcebook for any national or international institution concerned or charged with the sustained use and protection of mangroves.'
Eberhard F. Bruenig, International Forestry Review
