2001, Giri et al. In addition to the sites in Bocas del Toro, this thesis also examines global mangrove management practices, including the role that ecotourism plays in mangrove … Finally, selective logging might be responsible for local extinction of the vulnerable mangrove species Pelliciera rhizophorae (Figure 3: Puerto Cesar-Punta Coquito and Atrato River Delta; but recently recorded in Punta Las Vacas). fish periwinkle, oysters, bivalves, etc. This region remained poorly explored by ecologists during most of the 20th century due to public order issues, and mangrove forest inventories were limited to specific areas of interest . Human activity upland from mangroves may also impact water quality â¦ HUMAN IMPACTS ON MANGROVES 3 - 8 Factsheet #3: Effects of Pollutants on Water Sediments Particles of soil, sand, silt, clay, and minerals wash from land and paved areas into streams, wet-lands, and oceans. At an ecoregional scale, we observed that Littorinopsis angulifera (Gastropoda: Littorinidae) and Neritina virginea (Gastropoda: Neritidae), two iconic species in Caribbean mangroves, lacked adults or individuals at all, respectively, in small mangrove patches seemly shrinking due to deforestation and coastal erosion, along the northern and eastern coasts of the UrabÃ¡ Gulf . The objective of this paper was to answer the following questions. This forest also exhibited the lowest mean tree diameter and mean density (Table 1), a pattern promoted by selective logging of R. mangle and A. germinans, the species with greater importance value (IVI) in the Eastern Coast (Figure 3). ð Fringing mangroves at the Atrato River Delta stored the greatest amount of aboveground carbon (89.3âMgâC/ha) in comparison to the Eastern Coast mangroves (Table 2). Mangrove forests are a source of livelihood for thousands of coastal communities in developing countries worldwide; these communities traditionally harvest fish, shrimp, timber, non-timber forest Products, and fuel wood from them. Mangroves dominate tropical coasts and provide important services to humans, yet they are one of the most threatened ecosystems partially due to deforestation [1â3]. R.

The most recent inventory conducted as part of the UrabÃ¡ Gulf Mangrove Expedition [35, 36] updated mangrove extent and structure using color-high-resolution aerial photographs (1â:â10,000, pixel size 30 Ã 30âcm) taken along a 609âkm coastline, accompanied with field surveys in 79 circular 500âm2-plots during 2009 (Figureââ1 and Tableââ1 in ). some sort of [â¦] A. germinans formed nearly monospecific stands in the interior (basin) of the Eastern Coast mangroves. Source: United Nations, DESA, World Population Prospects 2019. Dahdouh-Guebas and Koedam  proposed that a transdisciplinary approach is required in order to advance in the knowledge of complex issues such as deforestation and climate change in mangroves. P. rhizophorae is found in the Caribbean only in a few locations in Colombia, contrary to its codominance along the Pacific coast of Central and South America [72â74]. An ethnoecological approach has also proven to be useful for understanding the drivers of deforestation [6, 29â32], while ecological economics have helped to account for the costs of mangrove conversion to other uses in a few case studies (e.g., ). As a case study, we used the UrabÃ¡ Gulf (Colombian Caribbean), an ecologically important yet threatened ecoregion located in the northern part of the Biogeographic ChocÃ³ biodiversity hotspot [35, 36]. A) Between 2013 and 2025, population growth will be about 9 percent in the United States and 3 percent in China. Mangroves offer provisioning, regulating, supporting, and cultural services [4â6]. , This technique attempts to address objectives 2 and 3, outlined above. Well documented by 25 years of AIMS research on the Reef, the increased sediment and nutrient loads to coastal waters: . Despite the tourism activities of the region, this region may be considered a cold spot of deforestation compared to the national average computed during the same period (1.3%, according to ). Oil treatments caused mass mortality of both epifauna and infauna within two days of oiling.  Extent and frequency of reference to rapid population growth among the 40 National Adaptation Programmes of Action reports These structural and floristic features are more alike to the mangroves in the Pacific coast than to the Caribbean coast of Colombia, probably due to the large freshwater discharge they receive from the Atrato River. The global loss of mangroves can be attributed largely to human population growth and development in the coastal zone. niï¬cance of the global shrimp industry. With 18% of the regionâs mangrove cover, deforestation rate in this country (1.1 and 0.6%) exceeded the South American average (0.69 and 0.18%) in estimates for 1980â1990 and 2000â2005. Review articles are excluded from this waiver policy. Gastropods in the Caribbean and elsewhere have been pointed as key detritivores and sediment grazers, even outweighing the role of crabs [80â82]. To develop awareness on the population dynamics. Mangrove species that form dense and often monospecific stands are considered âfoundation speciesâ that control population and ecosystem dynamics, including fluxes of energy and nutrients, hydrology, food webs, and biodiversity . At a landscape scale, we also reported that both selective logging and mangrove reclamation were responsible for reduced density in N. virginea (as well as in Melampus coffeus-Ellobiidae, a typical mangrove pulmonate gastropod) in Punta Yarumal in the vicinity of Turbo . (a) To what extent has deforestation impacted mangrove structure, species composition, biomass, and carbon reservoirs? Mangroves are ecologically important and extensive in the Neotropics, but they are visibly threatened by selective logging and conversion to pastures in the Southern Caribbean. But it is possible that the effect of population growth on economic development has been exaggerated, or that no single generalization is justified for countries differing as widely in growth rates, densities, and income levels as do today's less developed areas. 5 Mangrove wood is harvested by local communities for many purposes, but most notably as fuel for fish smoking. Provisioning services are the most commonly appreciated and include sources of timber, fibers and nonwoody products, fuels (firewood and charcoal), food (fisheries), biochemical products, and freshwater; however, the role of mangroves in climatic and hydrologic modulation, erosion control, protection against natural hazards, soil formation, and nutrient cycling has been recently recognized. Page 4/45 strong preference for driving alone. F.A.O. Selective logging and conversion to pastures have negative effects in forest structure and species composition, above-ground biomass and carbon reservoir, invasiveness, and benthic fauna in the UrabÃ¡ Gulf mangroves. 6. Kenya aims â¦ Table 1. 1. ing an increase in sea levels along coastal areas due to climate variability.6 The impact on the coastal population from a one metre sea-level rise will be quite severe. To provide the knowledge of causes of population growth and governmentâs efforts to check it. , Mangroves are specially adapted to high salinities and temperatures, tidal changes, and anaerobic sediments. A. germinans trees are not commonly marketed, but they are logged on demand for construction pilings and planks (Figure 4). 1. ) however, a weak self-thinning effect was observed in most transformed areas due to selective logging in the Eastern Coast ( population growth . Worldwide there is growing research interest in the ethnobiology of mangrove forests. Economic planning is often regarded as technique of managing an economy. 0 Responsible for total loss of mangrove habitat in some locations, urban development includes the construction of buildings and canal systems as well as the consumption of water by a growing human population. Though the major challenge of Nigerian roads being in deplorable state still poses a challenge, and that is why this study aims at examining the impact of transportation in the tourism industry. In addition, community and population metrics, otherwise uncorrelated with physicochemical variables under natural conditions , became significantly explained by temperature and pH in deforested mangroves . R. mangle is predominantly exploited for poles, but their commerce is poorly attractive , as evidenced by the piles commonly abandoned in informal markets, streets, or even in the field. Dredging. For this reason, coastal plain native forests (5048âha including mangroves) have been decimated and replaced by urban (1499âha), agriculture (67802âha), and pasture (142385âha) . Explain how population projections can be useful decisionmaking tools for policymakers. Mangrove deforestation drivers in the Colombian Caribbean coast may be similar to the observed in the Greater Caribbean Basin [16, 23], although rates seem to be lower than the few published examples from MÃ©xico and PanamÃ¡, two major Latin American hotspots . The objective of this paper was to summarize the impacts of both threats on forest structure, species composition, aboveground biomass and carbon reservoir, species introgressions, and benthic fauna populations by collating past and current data and by using an interdisciplinary approach in the Urabá Gulf (Colombia) as a case study. Colombiaâs Caribbean Coast harbors 88250âha of mangroves strongly threatened by human activities [15â18]. In the UrabÃ¡ Gulf, selective logging and land reclamation, in addition to coastline erosion, have reduced mangrove area, but it has particularly altered natural patterns of forest structure and species composition. Employing an interdisciplinary approach proved to be useful to demonstrate that basin mangroves are the most threatened physiognomy by deforestation due to their proximity to expanding pastures and villages. 1 Mangroves of the Niger River Delta grade into several plant communities from land to sea. IMPACT OF POPULATION EXPLOSION ON ENVIRONMENT. It is known that this fern proliferates in compacted, saline, and alkaline soils after mangrove clear cutting or hurricane-induced mass mortality [64, 68]. This paperaddressesthis gap. Selective logging seems to reduce total mangrove biomass and carbon, particularly in basin mangroves, but more importantly it is clearly altering allocation among species by reducing the storage in R. mangle and A. germinans and increasing the L. racemosa reservoir. B) The population of Ethiopia and Nigeria will likely increase by 35 percent or more between 2013 and 2025. Funding was provided by the Antioquia State Planning Secretariat, Universidad de Antioquia, Universidad Nacional and EAFIT consortium named âExpediciÃ³n Estuarina, golfo de UrabÃ¡, Fase 1â. Economic crises are therefore times of high risk to the mental well-being of the population and of the people affected and their families. Dredging and filling activities have caused flooding of mangrove habitat. for living as 33,698 ha. erosion: the wearing away of soil, rock, and sediments, etc. Mangrove species: Rm: Aboveground (area-weighed) carbon and biomass in mangroves in the UrabÃ¡ Gulf. In addition to the limited information about rates and drivers of mangrove deforestation, there is a lack of understanding on how specific activities such as selective logging and mangrove reclamation have impacted forest structure, faunal diversity, and services to humans, particularly in the Neotropics.

ADVERTISEMENTS: Effects of Population Growth on our Environment! Yet most of the information about deforestation remains as grey literature [15â18, 21], and, unfortunately, quantitative assessments of mangrove deforestation (using both follow-up remote sensing and field inventories) at a subnational level are scant and limited to strategic ecoregions such as the CiÃ©naga Grande de Santa Marta . In addition, mangroves along Eastern Coast and the northeastern vicinity of UrabÃ¡ Gulf have probably shrunken as a consequence of the steady coastline retreat experienced (1â50âm/yr; ). Nature and natural resources are destroyed as human populations grow.

With a diverse range of techniques available for restoration and rehabilitation, it is important to ensure that a clear objective exists . Area and structure parameters (mean values) for mangroves in the UrabÃ¡ Gulf. Mangrove biomass was traditionally appreciated as a major ecosystem good, but its importance in the coastal carbon budget has been recently highlighted [10, 11, 49, 56, 57]. If we go deep into the [â¦] J. F. Blanco, E. A. Estrada, L. F. Ortiz, L. E.

After that, data collection and methodology utilized in this study presented in Section 4 and 5. Such a population growth has been powered by the profitable banana industry comprising 50359âha of plantations and exports scoring 55.1 millions of cases . However, in the last decade food production from both land and sea has declined relative to population growth. Finally, selective logging and mangrove conversion to pastures were responsible for density declines of dominant gastropods (N. virginea) in mangrove canopy gaps and edges, and it is hypothesized that cascading effects may consequently occur in sediment bioturbation and leaflitter processing. Meynecke, S. Dittmann et al., âA world without mangroves?â. The ultimate goal of this summary was to contribute insights on the sustainability of current practices of mangrove exploitation. On the other hand, charcoal production is a common practice, but it is time consuming and poorly rewarded, because a sack is sold at 4âUSD (COP 8,000), although it requires logging and burning 20 trees (Figure 4). South American mangroves exhibit the lowest rates compared to Asia, Africa, Northern and Central America; however, a high regional variability is observed, and hotspots do exist . Finally, basin mangroves were more threatened than fringing mangroves due to their proximity to expanding pastures, villages, and a coastal city. herbicide: a chemical substance that controls or kills plants. It is in contrast with the observed in some areas of Mexico, where L. racemosa is preferably exploited for woody products over A. germinans and R. mangle, species that are mostly used for nonwoody products (i.e., medicine and leather dying), while no wood is burned for charcoal production . However, as stated by Bouillon et al. One of the factors responsible for environment degradation is population growth or population density. Indus delta mangroves are perhaps unique in being the largest arid climate mangroves in the world. ). Introgressions (cryptic ecological degradation) by L. racemosa and Acrostichum aureum (mangrove fern) and low densities of otherwise dominant detritivore snails (Neritina virginea) were observed in periurban basin mangroves. 2 Due to the low buoyancy of mangrove which limits their wide dispersal and distribution, it is important that their seeds should be preserved in seed banks to avoid extinction of mangrove species. Nonetheless, there is no doubt that this region is a deforestation hotspot in the Caribbean coast of Colombia, as evidenced by the field inventory, and observed human uses (see Section 3). In addition, different mangrove types (e.g., riverine, fringing, basin) provide specific services and support coastal fisheries to a different extent [6, 7], but they may also provide differential carbon capture capabilities [8â11].

The greatest risk is in East Asia, especially in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Myanmar. Selective logging and mangrove reclamation indirectly increased the IVI of L. racemosa in suburban basin mangroves (see discussion in Section 5), in contrast to the observed in isolated mangroves (Figure 3).

In addition to facing continual sea level rise, climate models predict that over the next century the Caribbean will experience: 1) a rise in sea surface . B. Kauffman, D. Murdiyarso, S. Kurnianto, M. Stidham, and M. Kanninen, âMangroves among the most carbon-rich forests in the tropics,â, N. C. Duke, J.-O. Future anthropogenic impacts on coastal ecosystems and mangroves will only increase as human populations in coastal regions are steadily increasing (Polidoro et al.  Now, the situation is the opposite. In addition to selective logging, basin mangroves are cleared for understory cattle ranching and for establishing pastures (Figure 4). If these specialized roots are covered for extended periods of time by sediments or water, the mangroves may die due to lack of oxygen to the plant tissues. One of the factors responsible for environment degradation is population growth or population density. Reflecting population growth and rising food insecurity, the number of hungry people on the African continent rose by 20 million from 2007 to 2010-2012. Alternative fuels that could reduce wood consumption are rarely used as fuel; they are used â¦ Selective logging increased the IVI of L. racemosa, an opportunistic species, invading canopy gaps, and recently cleared mangroves. Impact of economic crises on mental health page 1 Foreword It is well known that mental health problems are related to deprivation, poverty, inequality and other social and economic determinants of health. ADVERTISEMENTS: In this article we will discuss about the importance and objectives of planning in an economy. ð Due to this, the government has embarked on measures to help sustain this industry and use it as a tool to achieve its 2020 vision (Jetlife 2012:7). Provide necessary skill to evaluate the impact and consequence of population growth on society. This increases the challenge of adequately meeting nutritional needs. Such reductions seemed to be primarily mediated by changes in surface sediment properties (e.g., pH, temperature, organic matter content) and microhabitat complexity (trees, prop roots, and pneumatophores).

H. Sánchez-Páez, R. Álvarez-León, O. Think of all the “natural disasters” with which we’re afflicted: tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes, storm surges, hurricanes, cyclones, and so on. Bogotá D.C., Colombia, 1997. Clearing mangrove areas due to natural disturbances such as hurricanes has resulted in introgressions by fast-growing mangrove and nonmangrove species [61â65], and it is likely that selective logging and clear cutting may produce similar outcomes . Informe principal,â Contrato No 056/88, INDERENA REGIONAL ANTIOQUIA-ECOFOREST, Turbo, Colombia, 1990. However, due to unrestricted urban sprawl caused by the exponential growth of the city’s population, the settlement zone area reached 39,235 ha, which exceeds the limit by 5537 ha. Dredging suffocates mangroves when the aerial roots become flooded, preventing oxygen from reaching the root system. 4. A. Suárez, H. Ruiz, and J.

Colombia, located in the northernmost corner of South America, with coasts in both the Caribbean and the Pacific, exhibits the largest annual deforestation rate out of the eight South American countries with mangroves . The objective of this paper was to summarize the impacts of both threats on forest structure, species composition, aboveground biomass and carbon reservoir, species introgressions, and benthic fauna populations by collating past and current data and by using an interdisciplinary approach in the UrabÃ¡ Gulf (Colombia) as a case study. Most of the population and economic activity takes place on â¦ ing an increase in sea levels along coastal areas due to climate variability.6 The impact on the coastal population from a one metre sea-level rise will be quite severe. Smaller reservoirs may be locally important but seem to contribute little to the Gulfâs total budget. An effective and realistic population policy aims at ensuring that the rate of economic and social development is ahead of the rate of population growth. Deforestation alters forest structure and species composition . Because there is no electricity in some villages in southwest Cameroon, and also because of population growth, there is considerable pressure on forest resources, which results in increasing deforestation. This decline has led to a negative chain of effects in other ecosystems that are dependent on mangrove forest for survival. Urban development of areas in and near mangroves results in the destruction of this habitat as well as other associated wetland habitats. Extinctions and invasions in species-poor mangrove in the Neotropics are expected to bring notorious ecosystem-wide effects . Compared to worldwide above-ground biomass data (as a proxy of carbon storage), mangroves in the Atrato River delta represent a significantly high reservoir, but Eastern Coast mangroves lay below the average (Tables 2 and 3; [48, 49]). Next, Section 3 will provide a brief overview of the Mekong river Delta-Vietnam. And note that the impacts of such events are almost always worse if the human population affected is large. These same adaptations make them somewhat vulnerable to natural stresses. Coastal wetlands may transition from salt marsh to mangroveâdominated for a number of reasons: (1) mangroves are generally found at lower elevations compared to salt marshes in Australia, so can tolerate projected increased inundation; (2) mangroves exhibit greater rates of surface elevation change compared to salt marshes, so can better keep pace with SLR; and (3) other facilitative interactions between both ecosystems (Friess et al. 2010). Uses and sizes for a given mangrove species may differ from one place to another even within a single region in many parts of the world [29, 32]. : - 1 of nursery areas supporting commercial and game fisheries the most habitats!
