The hotspots for mangrove diversity and plastic emissions from rivers overlap in Asia, however very few studies have investigated anthropogenic marine debris (AMD) pollution in these threatened coastal ecosystems. Despite Hong Kong's position at the mouth of the Pearl River, a major source of mismanaged waste in Asia, the mangroves in Hong Kong hav...
Marine debris and plastic pollution affect all coastal habitats, however coastal debris studies are predominantly performed on sandy beaches. Other coastal habitats, such as mangroves, remain understudied. Eighteen of the top twenty rivers that contribute the most plastic to the ocean are associated with mangroves, but very few of those forests wer...
Despite its relatively large size among the Myrmicinae of the Indomalayan region, collection events of Paratopula Wheeler are rare. Here we discuss the discovery of Paratopula in Hong Kong and present Paratopula bauhinia sp. nov as a new species. This addition brings the number of globally described species for the genus to twelve species, four of...
The aim of this project is to develop an approach for quantifying anthropogenic marine debris (AMD) in mangroves, to understand how AMD affects mangroves and to understand where the current research is in regards to AMD in mangroves. This ongoing project will collate work done on macro and microplastic debris in Hong Kong mangroves. Researchers currently working on this project include: Dr. Lyle Dennis Vorsatz, Dr. Christelle Not, Dr. Stefano Cannicci, Ms. Mandy So
