The role of mangrove ecosystems and coastal aquaculture in the life of people in coastal mangrove areas
In discussing the benefits from forests, usually only the direct products such as timber or other forestry products are counted. Little attention is made on indirect benefits such as climate regulation, erosion prevention, flood restriction, etc., which are of great importance because mangrove forests grow at tidal and riverside areas where winds and waves are usually strong. In this paper, the direct products and indirect benefits from mangrove forests are discussed.
