    About This Project

    Impacts to Mangrove fringe forests leave coastal areas vulnerable to erosion and sea-level rise. Over 600 km of mangrove forests have already disappeared from Florida's coastal areas. Mangroves are protected in Florida, but no studies to date have evaluated the consequences of impacts that still occur under this protection. This study will assess how urbanization, forest canopy alteration, and coastal change affect Mangroves in Florida.
