Micronesian mangrove forest with high elevation and generalist species

Detailed Description

Mangrove forest in Pohnpei, Micronesia, with Bruguiera gymnorrhiza (sohmw) and Xylocarpus gymnorrhiza (pwulok).

The USGS and partners are studying how mangrove forests in the Federated States of Micronesia may respond to sea-level rise over the coming century. Their projections will help Micronesian communities plan for the future.
