Status of Mangroves in Malaysia is collection of reports from research studies and activities related to mangroves and its ecosystem throughout Malaysia. The studies were conducted mostly by Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM), local public universities and some non-government organizations (NGO's) that work in relevant fields to mangroves. Chapters that are included in this book were written by experts in their respective deciplines, which encompass, but not limited to the fields of mangroves ecology, geospatial related technology and methods, management, marine and aquatic life, community ativities, and medicinal sciences. This book was published under the support of Technical, Research and Development Commitee (JTRD), which is chaired by FRIM, where most of the studies related to mangroves are funded by this commitee, trough the Malaysian Plans funds. Status of Mangroves in Malaysia is also published as a successor to the book entitled Status of Mangrove in Peninsular Malaysia that was published in 2012. After 8 years, the status of mangroves reported in this book was extended to the East Malaysia, which include states of Sarawak and Sabah. The concept of this book is slightly different from the previous one, where more varieties of knowledge and infromation related to mangroves are included and introduced to expose readers about the richness of our priceless, pristine mangroves ecosystem in Malaysia. Thanks to all contributing authors, the JTRD that funded some of the research and to individuals that have involved directly or indirectly in the production of this book.
