Synopsis:

Sundarban Mangrove Wetland: A Comprehensive Global Treatise provides an illustrative accounting of the ecology, biology, conservation and management strategies of this endangered UNESCO World Heritage Site. The book's author addresses emerging ecological problems through a broad perspective, including eutrophication and pollution, sea level rise, alternations in sediment transport, chronic human-induced modifications, over-harvesting fisheries, and other non-living resources, along with the occurrence of natural catastrophic events such as storms and floods. The Sundarban wetland is important globally and provides a great reference point for comparisons to be made with other wetlands status, environmental challenges, and solutions.

This resource is a reliable and up-to-date reference for students, teachers and researchers engaged in the field of marine ecology, aquatic botany, environmental science, chemical oceanography, marine pollution and ecotoxicology, and wastewater treatment. It provides both basic and advanced information that is helpful for policymakers, resource managers, coastal zone managers, and all involved in coastal resource conservation and management.



  • Presents an in-depth and illustrative accounting of an iconic tropical mangrove wetland in an intelligible and easy-to-understand manner
  • Provides a unique look at the ecology, biodiversity and conservation and management of the Sundarban wetlands, along with the emerging ecological issues that may affect long-term sustainability
  • Focuses on several case studies, considering microzooplankton and trace metals in the Sundarban wetlands
