Mangroves - what they are and why they matter
Tuesday, 21 January, 2014 - 19:30 to 20:30
Tempest Anderson Hall
A lecture by Dr Peter Hogarth, University of York What are mangroves? To most people the word conjures up - if anything - an image of a fetid swamp, rife with dangerous beasts … This is true (up to a point!), but is only a part of the truth. Mangrove trees thrive where no other plants survive, and have evolved ways to cope with living in sea water and being permanently waterlogged. Because of this, they create a unique environment which would not otherwise exist: a tidal forest. Mangrove forests house and sustain a diverse and fascinating ecosystem.
