In Chinese, mangroves are literally 'red-tree-forests'. They are found in the most well known inter-tidal wetlands in Hong Kong. Yet few people visiting this kind of marshy coastal area can identify for sure which plants are 'true' mangroves. Nor can the visitors accurately name any of the crabs and snails there. This book gives a comprehensive introduction to the subject. Colour photographs, scientific names in both Chinese and English, simple descriptions of the features of plants and animals commonly found in mangroves, and a glossary are provided.
