The Biology of Mangroves and Seagrasses, Third Edition

Oxford University Press

Few species are exclusively found in mangrove or seagrass habitats; most occur elsewhere and accumulate in mangroves or seagrasses for shelter or food. Mangroves, seagrasses, and other coastal marine habitats such as saltmarsh, coral reefs, and the open sea are linked through the movement of organisms between them, and because of the flow of dissolved and particulate organic matter and inorganic nutrients. Particularly important examples of linkage include the dependence of coastal fisheries, and shrimp aquaculture, on mangroves.

Keywords:   coral reef, ecosystem interactions, fish, habitat linkage, mangrove, movement between habitats, outwelling, saltmarsh, seagrass, shrimp and fisheries
