As Ivan Polunin points out in his preface, mangroves are not comfortable places. They are some of the most humid environments in the world, which makes them an easy target for those wishing to clear them away in the interests of 'development.' In this book Mastaller, a marine ecologist and fisheries biologist, explains the vital importance of mangroves to the world's ecosystem by taking the reader on a tour of the variety of life that still manages to thrive in this 'forgotten forest.' New Hardback in a New Dust Jacket. 200 pages with many colour photographs.
