Mangrove forests are facing challenges from global seawater density changes


Nature Climate Change, Published online: 30 June 2022; doi:10.1038/s41558-022-01393-7

Climate change affects sea surface density via changes in the sea surface temperature and salinity. These projected sea surface density changes are likely to affect the dispersal patterns of widely distributed mangrove species and are expected to be largest in the Indo West Pacific, the primary hotspot of mangrove diversity.
