Forests are valued for many different things; they are the home of indigenous people, reserves of medicinal plants, support a high biodiversity, and provide ecosystem services such as protection from erosion, landslides, storms, tidal surges and wave action. Mangrove forests provide many products of commercial value (fin fish, shell fish, honey, timber, fodder etc.). Additionally, forests sequester carbon, which is another good reason to conserve them. This book attempts to quantify the pools of carbon in the dominant mangrove species found in the Indian Sundarbans. The book contains research articles, based on on-the-ground research efforts.
