This volume comprises original research papers reporting findings collected by participants of the International Workshop on the Mangrove Ecosystem of Deep Bay and the Mai Po Marshes, jointly organized by the University of Hong Kong and World Wide Fund for Nature Hong Kong and held at the Mai Po Marshes in September 1993. The papers cover a wide range of topics relevant to the future conservation and management of the threatened ecosystem, ranging from the flora and fauna of the mangrove forests and inner Deep Bay to pollution levels in the biota.

Dr Shing Yip Lee was formerly Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology and Biodiversity of the University of Hong Kong.

Dr Lee has, since then, published extensively on the ecology and management of the Mai Po Marshes and in general mangrove ecology. Dr Lee is a Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences of Griffith University, Australia.
