A shift in priority and approach to wetland restoration could reduce atmospheric carbon.
Mangroves found in southern Mexico’s rain forest, 170 kilometers from the nearest ocean, date to a time when sea levels were several meters higher.
An overgrown channel between a lagoon and the ocean on the Puerto Rican island of Vieques created a backup of freshwater, disrupting the delicate balance of salinity in coastal mangrove forests.
Researchers propose the creation of an anthropogenic vulnerability index to help guide conservation policy decisions.
The scale and pattern of damage to the Puerto Rican forests suggest a complex interplay between wind, land, and sea.
