Status of Mangroves in Peninsular Malaysia: Realizing the importance of managing and conserving the mangrove forest ecosystem especially after the tsunami tragedy in Indonesia in 2004, the Malaysian government provided budget allocation for FRIM to undertake research activities related to the mangrove forest. One of the research is on the mapping and monitoring of mangrove forest changes in the entire Peninsular Malaysia. To share the findings from the study, a book entitled the "Status of Mangroves in Peninsular Malaysia" is published. The book is divided into eleven (11th) main chapters explaining the mangrove ecosystem, its function and values, their current extent and distribution in Peninsular Malaysia in its first five (5) initial chapters. The following six (6) other chapters focused on the mangrove changes for the past 20 years, management, research and development aspects, threat, conservations efforts and highlight on the community awareness program. This book is part of FRIM's continuous efforts to create more awareness to the public on the importance of mangrove forest ecosystem in this country.
