In addition, as, farmers often use fertilizers and chemicals, runoff containing these pollutants makes. They must be given technical, assistance, training, education and diverse livelihood programs to enhance their, capability. in this, the specific objectives of the study includes the following: However, due to anthropogenic activities as well as natural disturbances, the country continues to lose its rich biodiversity resources including mangroves. Conservation of ocean environments, seas, coasts, the coral reefs and their magnicient diversity of marine animals and plants. Because of its physical characteristics, mangroves are often chosen as a primary, option. Penman-Monteith equation was used to determine transpiration rate at canopy level. For more than 30 years, a community in the central Philippines has been actively involved in reforesting and protecting a mangrove … “Being archipelagic in nature, a large part of the population of the Philippines depend on the mangroves for food, livelihood, and shelter derived from the mangrove ecosystem,” the paper noted.

ZSL's team of mangrove researchers have published the following manuals: 1. 2011). In: Brown WH, editor. In the face of climate change, many of the regulating services of mangroves are, actually becoming more necessary and valuable, especially their buffering capacity, against storms and flooding.

We also investigated if there were any patterns in the distribution of informants' knowledge and whether such patterns could be related to socio-economic factors. to the existing species selection criteria for forest restoration program, especially across Mount Papandayan. But brackishwater pond culture, whose history is intertwined with that of mangroves, remains the major cause of loss. From this comparison it was concluded that even if important palms are used for more purposes than less important palms, they owe their importance to one or two of their main uses. Failures came off due to ambiguous implementing rules and regulations and the lack of science-guided protocols (Primavera et al.
