Are mangrove forests being destroyed because of climate change?

    Most climate change effects are projected to happen in colder climate areas, however some plants and wildlife in warmer areas are being affected already – mangrove forests in Africa are one of these areas.  The rising sea levels caused by global warming (and by our own fossil water mining) can easily flood the coastal mangrove trees, and due to the intense agriculture generally found directly behind the thin line of mangroves in Africa, they will not be able to migrate further inland.
