Abstract

  • Mangrove ecosystems have critical values to people.
  • Over 30% of mangrove areas have been lost in the last 100 years.
  • There are now three endangered and two critically endangered mangrove species.
  • Temperature rise causes precipitation changes and sea-level rise, that both have impacts on mangroves.
  • Precipitation changes affect mangrove productivity and species diversity.
  • Most mangroves are not keeping up with sea-level rise which is causing mangrove dieback.
  • Mangrove crabs are essential bioengineers in mangroves, and are themselves impacted by raising temperatures.
  • Ocean warming will affect connectivity among mangrove faunal communities.
