MUMBAI: The retail price of most varieties of marine fish in Mumbai has doubled in the last five to eight years. For that matter, the number of varieties has also dwindled.

KENDRAPARA: Emergence of baby Olive Ridley marine turtles along Gahirmatha beach on Odisha's coast has provided relief to conservationists.

KOCHI: With the destruction of mangrove forests continuing unabated both in private and public lands, the district office of the state biodiversity board has come forward to protect one such area b

Order of the National Green Tribunal (Western Zone Bench, Pune) in the matter of Dileep B.Nevatia V/s Union of India & Others dated 01/03/2017 regarding CRZ clearance to Mumbai Trans-Harbour Link (MTHL) project across Mumbai Harbour.

Only surviving issue is the compliance of the directions to the MoEF to consider the issue relating to applicability of Environmental Regulation, 2006, effect on mangroves, flamingos and mudflats, besides other impacts while dealing with the application for CRZ clearance afresh.

Plants with rising atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) level in the environment may change their nutrient demands to sustain growth. The mechanisms concerning iron dynamics in plants under the interactive effect of salinity and elevated CO2 are poorly understood. This study examines the effects of long-term as well as short-term growth at elevated CO2 and salt on iron deficiency-associated molecular responses of Porteresia coarctata through analysing the transcript expression of iron deficiency-responsive genes in the leaf tissue.

Mangrove plantation belts are expected to act as natural infrastructural buffers against coastal hazards. However, their performance will not endure over time if the platform is not appropriately designed. In fact, despite massive funds dedicated to the rehabilitation of mangrove forests, the long-term survival rates of mangroves are generally low. This paper investigates the function of mangrove embankments in attenuating the amplitudes of ocean tides through a coupled numerical model that reproduces shallow-water wave propagations under the progress of soil consolidation.

Analysis done using temporal satellite data over six different time periods concluded that the mangrove cover in state has been increased.

The Meinmahla Kyun wetland reserve in Ayeyarwady Region has been designated a Ramsar site, joining two other such sites in Myanmar.

Mangrove forests that incorporate local communities into their management fare better, a new study by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) in Indonesia and Tanzania released today

The National Blue Carbon Policy Assessment Framework provides guidance to countries seeking to move forward with developing synergized conservation and restoration programmes and strategies through existing or new national laws, policies and initiatives.
