Assessment and Monitoring of Climatic Change Impacts on Mangrove
Ecosystems, a report prepared by UNEP on the impact of climate changes
on mangroves, includes a description of mangrove ecosytems, the response of
mangrove fauna and flora to expected climate change, the effect of
relative sea-level rise, and the impact of climate change on land use,
utilization, and exploitation of mangrove. Projections of future trends for
climate change are based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC) scenarios.
