Synopsis:

Sundarban Mangrove Wetland: A Comprehensive Global Treatise provides an illustrative account of the ecology, biology, conservation, and management strategies of this endangered UNESCO World Heritage Site. The author addresses the 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 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.

Sundarban Mangrove Wetland: A Comprehensive Global Treatise 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. The manual provides both basic and advanced information to be helpful for policy makers, resource managers, coastal zone managers, and all involved in coastal resource conservation and management.



  • Presents an in-depth and illustrative account of an iconic tropical mangrove wetland in an intelligible and easy-to-understand manner
  • Provides a unique look at the aspects of ecology, biodiversity, and conservation and management of the Sundarban wetlands and the emerging ecological issues for long-term sustainability of this vulnerable wetland ecosystem
  • Focuses on several case studies considering a host of topics including microzooplankton and trace metals in the Sundarban wetlands
