- 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.
