Formatted Abstract/Summary
Mangroves are found across the global region of the Indo West Pacific from east Africa through Asia to the western Pacific Ocean. The biodiversity of mangroves the highest in the world with 52 plant species being ~85% of the world's, from 24 general and 20 plant families, while the total area equals around 57% of the worlds, with around 102, 500 km2. Mangroves throughout the region are threatened by direct and indirect human activities as well as climate change and rising sea levels. There are unprecedented threats to mangrove diversity and survival. This article briefly reviews chief threats adn pressures, and presents recommendations for future research and developement.
