Mangrove forests occur most extensively on low-energy, sedimentary
shorelines of the tropics, generally between intertidal elevations. Their global
extents are limited by the 20 degree C sea surface temperature isotherm; hence, coastal
distributions in the subtropics are influenced by the origin of influencing oceanic
currentsthus reaching higher latitudes on east coasts of continents
relative to west. Within these temperature-controlled global ranges, the extent of
mangrove habitats is mostly controlled by availability of suitable environmental
settings, and biodiversity therein is mostly controlled by biogeographic history.
