About this book

This important text brings together details of emersed and submerged coastal plant communities throughout Latin America. Topics covered include distribution, structure and function, and community ecology, for the benthic algal, seagrass, saltmarsh, mangrove and dune plant communities. Given the scarcity of the literature on Latin American botany, this title is a much-needed addition.
