Field guide to mangrove identification and community structure analysis
The mangrove field guide is a 32-page field guide with a one page introduction on mangroves, followed by a key to mangrove genera and species (with colored pictures of the whole plant and plant parts), then a definition of important terms used in the key, species code for use during mangrove community structure, instructions on how to conduct mangrove community structure analysis plus the formulas for the different indices (relative density, dominance, frequency; importance value and species diversity) and a sample data sheet. The guide, measuring 9 cm x 14 cm, is printed on PVC material hence it can get wet, soaked or be left in the water for days.
