About the Journal
Mangrove Watch is a peer-reviewed journal focused on the latest research, conservation, and management practices related to global mangrove ecosystems. As vital coastal habitats, mangroves provide a range of ecosystem services that support human livelihoods and protect shorelines, yet they remain critically threatened by development, aquaculture expansion, and climate change.
This journal provides a forum for scientists, conservationists, resource managers, policymakers, and local communities to publish impactful research and exchange knowledge to better understand, conserve, restore, and manage mangroves sustainably. Topics covered reflect the diverse values, uses, and threats facing mangroves worldwide, including ecology, biodiversity, carbon storage capabilities, interactions with adjacent habitats, hydrology, community reliance and governance, vulnerability mapping, the impacts of and adaptation options for climate change, monitoring and modeling approaches, policy implications, and integrated conservation strategies.
At the heart of Mangwatch lies a dedication to unraveling the mysteries of mangroves, which serve as the lifeblood of coastal regions worldwide. Through meticulous research and insightful analysis, our journal explores the complex web of relationships between mangroves, marine life, climate patterns, and human societies. We investigate how these ecosystems mitigate climate change, protect coastlines from erosion, and provide invaluable resources and habitats for countless species.
In essence, Mangrove Watch stands as a beacon of hope and knowledge, advocating for the protection and sustainable management of mangrove ecosystems. Through rigorous research, collaborative partnerships, and informed decision-making, we aim to ensure the resilience and longevity of these invaluable coastal treasures for generations to come.
