Abstract

Further changes in the area covered by mangroves are to expected if the sea rises at the rates anticipated as a result of the greenhouse effect. The exact response of a mangrove coastline will depend upon shoreline topography, sources of sediment, rates of sediment supply, and the rate of sea-level rise. The stratigraphy and chronology of Holocene deposits on mangrove shorelines allow reconstruction of the way that mangrove forests have responded to rising sea level in the past, and thus provide some insight into how they may respond in the future
