Science showcase: Probing Indonesia’s Mangroves

This publication exhibition is organized by CIFOR

Learn more about Center for International Forestry Research’s extensive global mangrove research at the CIFOR booth during the Blue Carbon Summit. Peruse a variety of mangrove-related scientific publications and learn more about CIFOR as an organization. CIFOR senior scientist Daniel Murdiyarso and his team will also be on hand at the booth to demonstrate probing mangroves.

Indonesia houses the largest percentage of mangroves on earth (25%), but we are still learning about this unique ecosystem while also contending with an alarming loss of 52,000 ha mangroves annually. We need to work fast to understand the mangrove ecosystem to help form informed conservation and restoration policies.
