    Today we planted around 100 mangrove plants in tidal swamp. The area has been taken over by invasives recently, which outcompetes the mangroves that are so vital to the ecosystem. The mangroves provide habitat for many species of birds and fish, unlike the invasive plant. Destroying mangrove habitat for poorly planned rice farms allowed invasives to take over and seriously harm mangrove populations, which means there’s less habitat and more erosion. This is an example of how the placement of…

    Erwin (2009) suggest that wetlands will play a crucial role in response to climate change. There are many different types of wetlands, such as: mangrove forests, seagrasses, salt marshes, and peatlands. Each of these and more have and will continue to change. Mangroves are a great example of a vulnerable habitat due to climate changes. Mangroves are freeze-intolerant so the amount of viable habitat for them is already limited. There is proof of mangroves moving northward and taking over salt…
