Distribution of coral, mangrove and seagrass diversity

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Water Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Similar to corals, the region of greatest mangrove diversity is in Southeast Asia, particularly around the Indonesian Archipelago (Burke et al., 2001). There are three distinct areas of seagrass diversity in the Pacific region: the Indo-Pacific (areas around Indonesia, Malaysia, and Papua New Guinea), the seas around Japan, and southwest Australia (Spalding et al., 2002). This graphic illustrates the distribution and biodiversity (low, medium and high diversity) of corals, mangroves and seagrass in the world's coastal and marine areas.
