    On the back page, it says "in areas where there is population pressure on farmland, mangroves may come under threat of removal" - whyyyyy? Thanks
    Dense population means taking up more land, and if more farm land that means less farm land for farmers to farm on and get food from so they might remove mangroves in order to get more space?? Mangroves are generally found in shallow coastal environments means that if they are removed then the land is more fertile? Don't know if that helps/makes sense! (I'm bad at wording things ><)

    People use the trees for building materials, to feed their cattle, for fuel wood, and theres a large clearance with the increase in shrimp farming. So to combat it an easy way is plant plant fodder (crops that farmers can feed their animals alternatively) and fast growing trees for fuelwood.

    By the way what are people thinking the reason is for the blank information in the table? is it just that the statistics were taken before it was over? or does it mean that they are just actually zero ?

    more land needed for agriculture? as the mangroves will trap a lot of silt so the lands will be quite fertile
    trees felled for revenue or fuel?

    Honestly a guess, I'm dreading this paper more than tuesdays one as I've already failed it once and with the Belfast one I actually had my teacher helping us and had months to prepare, this time I had to do it by myself. :/
    ye thanks I thought something like that. It's weird though, everyone at our school worked really hard for the Belfast one and came out with rubbish results, probably because we concentrated too much on the wrong, irrelevant stuff. With this, I'd say just know where is what in the book (i.e. where to look) and the website!

    Reduces impact of storm surges, but prevents silt which is needed for farmland, and often the farmers needed more water to grow their crops

    True I guess we spent so much time looking at all these websites we may have focused more on that than the actual booklet? But as this one is really text heavy and has only one website I'm guessing the majority of our answer has to be from there anyway. But some of the questions were stupidly worded, but hey that's AQA for you.

    I keep forgetting the mangrove page at the back lol

    Thats great thank you!
    Is they're any way i can get hold of the answer book?
    It doesn't seem to be anywhere online so I scanned it in. I merged the pages into 1 document but it's too big to attach and I don't really want to upload it anyway because of copyright or whatever.

    Anyway, I guess I can e-mail it to anyone who needs it.
