        Better protection for mangroves with models for successful seedling establishment
        Seedlings of mangroves do not have an easy time to get established. Many forces of nature work against their anchorage in the soil. Human intervention in coastal areas and climate change also make life difficult for mangrove seedlings. Thorsten Balke studied the conditions that enable mangrove seedlings to be successful. On 18 December he will defend his PhD thesis at Radboud University.
