World Atlas of Mangroves

By Mark Spalding, Mami Kainuma and Lorna Collins

'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)

June 2010 • 336 pages • 297 x 210mm • ISBN 9781844076574

About this book

Published with ISME, ITTO and project partners FAO, UNESCO-MAB, UNEP-WCMC and UNU-INWEH

This atlas provides the first truly global assessment of the state of the world's mangroves. Written by a leading expert on mangroves with support from the top international researchers and conservation organizations, this full colour atlas contains 60 full-page maps, hundreds of photographs and illustrations and a comprehensive country-by-country assessment of mangroves.

Mangroves are considered both ecologically and from a human perspective. Initial chapters provide a global view, with information on distribution, biogeography, productivity and wider ecology, as well as on human uses, economic values, threats, and approaches for mangrove management. These themes are revisited throughout the regional chapters, where the maps provide a spatial context or starting point for further exploration. The book also presents a wealth of statistics on biodiversity, habitat area, loss and economic value which provide a unique record of mangroves against which future threats and changes can be evaluated. Case-studies, written by regional experts provide insights into regional mangrove issues, including primary and potential productivity, biodiversity, and information on present and traditional uses and values and sustainable management.

Review Quotes

'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
