Abstract

Mangroves occur in most countries across the Australasian region extending from the larger islands of Australia and New Guinea to those in north and south areas of the western Pacific Ocean. The mangroves are known for their high diversity with 53 plant species, being ~75% of the world's, from 22 genera and 20 plant families, while the total area equals around 10% of the worlds, with more than 18,000 km2. Most occur along the Australian and New Guinea coastlines which also include most species. Mangroves are managed differently across the region. Based on Australian examples chiefly, this article briefly reviews chief threats and pressures, identifies policy issues and presents recommendations for the future.
