Complete Title: 
Coral reefs, mangroves and seagrasses : a sourcebook for managers
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

11% of all coral reefs have been damaged beyond recovery or totally destroyed; another 16% were damaged in 1998 by climate change related to coral bleaching. More than 50% of the world’s mangrove forests have been cleared without understanding the enormous value of these muddy coastal forests. Seagrass beds have had similar losses in many areas. This book was written for practicing resource managers and educators in developing countries. Its goal is to provide information and practical examples to help prevent further damage to coral reefs and other tropical coastal ecosystems.
