Each province is shown coloured by the broad region in which it is situated, the Islands, File Size: KB. Information is presented on the present-day distribution of mangrove forests, physiological and structural adaptations of mangrove trees to sediment conditions and climatic factors, physical and chemical features and biological interactions in the mangrove forest environment, flora and fauna colonizing mangrove forests, comparisons of primary production, and processing and leaching of dead Cited by:

      Southeastern peninsula of Papua New Guinea The Southeastern Papuan Rain Forests [AA]-dominated by the Owen Stanley highlands, the major mountain range in the ecoregion-contain vast tracts of pristine montane forests (Miller et al. ).   Papua New Guinea has extremely high biodiversity. The total number of different plants and animals in Papua New Guinea is not accurately known but almost certainly exceeds , species. Scientists estimate that more than half the plants and animals found in Papua New Guinea have yet to be scientifically named.

      The handbook is a step-by-step guide to implementing mangrove rehabilitation projects in the country. It is a milestone for Papua New Guinea and WCS as it is the first guide of its kind to be published in the country. “I am proud to be part of this achievement which was a long, tedious and challenging task but a great experience for me”. This book provides an introduction to mangroves, including their taxonomy, habitat-specific features, reproduction and socio-economic value. Fully updated to reflect the last two decades of research, this new edition of a key text includes newly documented taxa, new understandings of vivipary and the evolution of mangrove species, and a rich Cited by:

Papua New Guinea has large tracts of intact mangrove forest with a high species diversity extending over many thousands of shore kilometres and, in many regions, penetrating quite deeply inland.

In general, mangrove development, especially of large stands, is better on the mainland along the southern coast than along the northern coast. Andrew J.

The coco de mer tree can grow up to feet (31 m) tall, with leaves measuring 20 ft (6 m) long and 12 feet ( m) wide. Southern New Guinea (including West Papua and Papua New Guinea) possesses the highest mangrove diversity in the world (Ellison b; Duke et al.

Nipa palm (Nypa fruticans Wurmb., Arecaceae) is an important component of the East Asian mangrove is one of the oldest living palms [1,2].In Bangladesh, the natural distribution of Nipa palm is restricted to the ‘Sundarbans’, the largest single continuous tract of mangrove forest in the world [3,4].It grows along coastlines and estuarine habitats in the Indian and Pacific by: 4.This review paper discusses the production, uses and importance of Nipa palm (Nypa fruticans Wurmb., Arecaceae).

It is a mangrove palm that grows well in ‘Sundarbans’ mangrove forest of Bangladesh. Nipa palm is locally called ‘Golpata’ used for multipurpose such as roof thatching, partitioning, foods, medicinal purposes and as a source of fuel wood.New Guinea is the highest island and largest tropical island on Earth and this spectacular topography helped give rise to an extraordinary array of terrestrial ecosystems that fosters very high levels of biodiversity and species endemism.

New Guinea is the land of the birds-of-paradise, bowerbirds, cassowaries, crowned pigeons, tree kangaroos and birdwing butterflies.
