Welcome to this edition of 
Forest Information Update
. We have made changes to our web site, so you can check it out at www.forestinformationupdate.com. Mangroves aresometimes like the forgotten forests. Not as spectacular as some and not overtly commercially productive as others, mangroves are like that unassuming friend who isalways there for you. In this case, mangroves are critical in coastal protection during cyclone/hurricane seasons and are home to diverse species. They have also beenfound to help play a role as buffers against tsunami impacts following earthquakes. Yet our friends the mangroves have been under attack, from development and the like. Thelatest threat comes from the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.See below for articleshighlighting the threat to mangroves. Please, feel free to contact me if you have any queries about content or sponsorship. Kind regards, Mike Smith, Editor and Director info@southem.com
