Argentina

As global population increases, urban expansion is turning into a forest loss and degradation driver that causes detrimental impacts on ecological processes and functions.

This project will focus mainly in Thailand.

Brazil

As plastic debris in marine areas originates mainly from terrestrial areas, coastal environments are particularly affected by its deposition. Pneumatophore roots are considered the main responsible for the retention of plastic residue in the mangroves. Crabs, in turn, are a dominant and relevant faunal component due to their key role in keeping mangrove forests healthy and resilient.
