In the regions where these plants grows are termed as "Mangrove Ecosystem". Sundarban mangrove ecosystem in India and Bangladesh.

The Sundarbans mangroves, located in the Bay of Bengal (partly in India and partly in Bangladesh), were the first mangroves in the world to be put under scientific management.

The area's first management plan was implemented in (Chaudhuri and Choudhury, ). This is a list of mangrove ecoregions ordered according to whether they lie in the Afrotropic, Australasian, Indomalayan or Neotropic areas of the world. Mangrove estuaries such as those found in the Sundarbans of southwestern Bangladesh are rich productive ecosystems which serve as spawning grounds and nurseries for shrimp, crabs, and many fish species, a richness.

India has lost 40% of its mangrove area in the last century, mainly due to agriculture, aquaculture, tourism, urban development and overexploitation, researchers from the Indian Institute of.

Mangroves also provide terrestrial habitat for many species. The vast mangroves of the Sundarbans (Bangladesh and India), for example, currently host the largest intact tiger population in the world. Mangrove ecosystems cover a relatively small area on a global scale, but they are remarkably evolved ecosystems with many physical and biological.

Mangroves are of great ecological importance and socio-economic significance as a hub for tropical marine biotope. The mangroves are also one of the world’s richest storehouses of biological and genetic diversity.

Furthermore, 90 % of the marine organisms spend part of their life in this ecosystem and 80 % of the global fish catches are dependent on by:   The India State of Forest Report (SFR) published recently has revealed that the mangrove cover in the country has increased by sq km.This research article reports an exhaustive account on the mangrove-associated polychaetes.

Polychaetes are an important component in marine benthic communities and they play a major ecological role in mangrove ecosystem. This article gives an overview of polychaete diversity associated to five major mangrove forests of east coast of India (Muthupettai, Pichavaram, Cited by: 1.
