Call for Authors – “Threats to Mangrove Forests: Hazard, Vulnerability and Management Solution

Call for Authors – “Threats to Mangrove Forests: Hazard, Vulnerability
and Management Solutions” (to be edited by Dr. Christopher Makowski
and Dr. Charles W. Finkl)

This edited volume in the Coastal Research Library (CRL) series will
focus on the worldwide threats to mangrove forests and the management
solutions currently being used to counteract those hazards. The
purpose of this book is to delve into both human-induced and natural
impacts to mangroves, intended or otherwise, as well as the efforts
being made by coastal researchers to promote restoration of these
coastal fringing forests. All topics related to these central themes
are welcome and can be presented in the form of current research
methods and findings, review chapters, or expanded case studies and
pilot programs that are designed to better understand the best
practices of mangrove management. Local approaches, as well as
national and international efforts to preserve and restore the
functionality of mangrove systems can be presented in terms of
climate-smart habitat conservation. The outlook of this work is global
in extent and local by intent. The contributions in this book are not
only of interest to those working exclusively with mangroves, but to
those also working to protect the surrounding coastal areas of all
types. This book will be compiled as part of the highly-regarded
Coastal Research Library (CRL) series, published by Springer Science
in Dordrecht, The Netherlands. The CRL covers all aspects of coastal
research including but not limited to relevant aspects of geological
sciences, biology (incl. ecology and coastal marine ecosystems),
geomorphology (physical geography), climate, littoral oceanography,
coastal hydraulics, environmental (resource) management, engineering,
and remote sensing.
Charles W. Finkl is the founding Series Editor of the CRL. For the
past 32 years, Dr. Finkl has been the Executive Director of the
Coastal Education and Research Foundation (CERF) and Editor-in-Chief
of the international Journal of Coastal Research (JCR). He has edited
and/or contributed to more than eight volumes in the Encyclopedia of
Earth Sciences Series, of which he is also the Series Editor. In
addition to these duties, he is Distinguished University Professor
Emeritus at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida, USA.
Thus, we invite your suggestions and ideas for contributed chapters
related to the central themes described above. Please send your
