Into the Mangrove Forest
Mangrove research has not been a popular field of scientific research, because the environment where mangroves grow is often humid and hot, which is quite a difficult environment for researchers. However, Professor Joe LEE enjoys researching in mangrove. Since 30 years ago, he has been focusing on the ecology of mangrove and is a pioneer in mangrove studies in Hong Kong. Mangroves have important ecological value. They are not only the habitat of many animals, but also have an important carbon storage function. There are still many undiscovered possibilities for its ecological value.
