About this book

Mangrove forests along the vast expanses of Indonesia's 95,180 kilometres of shoreline have long attracted man's curiosity. These unique tidal forests have developed luxuriantly along the low-gradient, passive-margins of the wide continental shelf of Indonesia. No books concerning Indonesia's mangroves have been published previously by the Research Centre for Oceanography of the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), despite the fact that these forests are areas of amazing beauty, exceptionally high biodiversity, and are the home and basis for the sociocultural and economic livelihoods of millions of Indonesians. Mangroves of the South China Sea highlights a particular problem regarding the 13 provinces that border the South China Sea – there is insufficient information about the vast coastal tracts of Indonesia's South China Sea region.
