Publication Highlights


In January 2022, a major work by Daniel Alongi was published by Wiley-Blackwell entitled Tropical Marine EcologyThe book documents the structure and function of tropical marine populations, communities and ecosystems in relation to environmental factors including climate patterns and climate change, and patterns of oceanographic phenomena such as tides and currents and major oceanographic features as well as chemical and geological drivers.

Earlier books published by Daniel Alongi include Coastal Ecosystem Processes, The Energetics of Mangrove Forests, Mangroves of the South China Sea: Ecology and Human Impacts on Indonesia's Forests (with S. Sukardjo), Blue Carbon: Coastal Sequestration for Climate Change Mitigation, and Tropical Mangrove Ecosystems co-edited with A.I. Robertson).
