       -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
