Likewise, the 2010 update of the World Mangrove Atlas indicated a fifth of the world's mangrove ecosystems have been lost since 1980.
The United Nations Environment Program estimate that shrimp farming causes approximately a quarter of the destruction of mangrove forests.
Approximately 35% of mangrove area was lost during the last several decades of the 20th century.
More than 5 species of Rhizophoraceae grow in Australasia with particularly high biodiversity on the island of New Guinea.
The Sundarbans is the largest single block of tidal halophytic mangrove forest in the world.
In the Ganga-Brahmaputra delta, Sundri trees are found, which provide durable hard timber.
In Arabic, mangrove trees are known as qurm, thus the mangrove area in Oman is known as Qurm Park.
Oman, near Muscat, supports large areas of mangroves, in particular at Shinas, Qurm Park and Mahout Island.
Pakistani mangroves are located mainly along the delta of the Indus River (the Indus River Delta-Arabian Sea mangroves ecoregion).
Indonesia has around 9.36 million hectares of mangrove forests, but 48% is categorized as 'moderately damaged' and 23% as 'badly damaged.'
The three most important mangrove forests of Taiwan are Tamsui River in Taipei, Jhonggang River in Miaoli and the Sihcao Wetlands in Tainan.
Mangroves occur in certain muddy swampy islands of the Maldives.
The Sundarbans is the largest mangrove forest in the world, located in the Ganges River delta in Bangladesh and West Bengal, India.

The following listing (modified from Tomlinson, 1986) gives the number of species of mangroves in each listed plant genus and family.
The greatest biodiversity occurs in the mangal of New Guinea, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Of the recognized 110 mangrove species, only about 54 species in 20 genera from 16 families constitute the "true mangroves."
Mangrove plantations in Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines and India host several commercially important species of fishes and crustaceans.
The unique ecosystem found in the intricate mesh of mangrove roots offers a quiet marine region for young organisms.
Mangrove swamps protect coastal areas from erosion, storm surge (especially during hurricanes), and tsunamis.
Mangrove plants require a number of physiological adaptations to overcome the problems of anoxia, high salinity & frequent tidal inundation.
About 110 species are considered "mangroves", in the sense of being a tree that grows in such a saline swamp.
Mangrove swamps are found in tropical and subtropical tidal areas. Areas where mangal occurs include estuaries and marine shorelines.
It was earlier "mangrow" (Portuguese mangue or Spanish mangle) but this word was corrupted via folk etymology influence of the word "grove".
The term "mangrove" comes to English from Spanish (perhaps by way of Portuguese), and is likely to originate from Guarani.
They are adapted to the low oxygen (anoxic) conditions of waterlogged mud.
Mangroves are salt tolerant trees (halophytes) adapted to live in harsh coastal conditions.
The remaining mangrove forest areas of the world in 2000 was 53,190 square miles (137,760 km²).
