The immense ecological importance of magroves is increasingly being recognised by planners but perhaps not by the general public. Singapore has already lost 90% of its mangroves. Scientists and photographers have worked together in this study of the inhabitants of the remaining 10%. The need for replanting and diversity of endurance of the many inhabitants of the mangroves is made clear. The many parts they play in the maintenance of ecological health even in today's largely urban situations are highlighted. With colour photographs, scientific identification data, bibliography and index.
