Introduction Mangrove refers to brackish-water-tolerant trees that together constitute mangrove forest. Along the Kenyan coast to be specific, there exist about 8 species namely Rhizophora mucronata, Ceriops tagal, Bruguiera gymnorrhiza, Sonneratia Alba, Xylocarpus granatum, Avicennia marina, Lumnitzera racemosa and Heritiera littoralis.
ABSTRACT This study uses old aerial photographs, current high resolution satellite images and ground truthing to analyze the patterns and dynamics of Mida Creek mangrove forest changes over 41 years from A non-distractive method was used to collect data on 25 sample plots and trees were measured to estimate the above ground biomass and carbon stock of the forest.
Signs of degradation within the mangrove forest were observed in in which the degraded land covered 8.
The total above ground biomass and carbon estimated on the 25 plots was Mida Creek mangrove forest is largely dominated by the presence of Rhizophora mucronata and Ceriop tagal and the regeneration of these two species is very high.
If the present dominance of the two species continues it will affect the species composition of the current mangrove forest. This study recommends a better management plan for the mangrove forest through increasing involvement of the surrounding communities.
Furthermore, there should be a way to control selective and illegal cutting of mangroves and promote other species of trees for domestic and commercial use to reduce the high dependency on the use of mangroves for construction purposes.for the Assessment of Environmental Factors Western Australia (in accordance with the Environmental Protection Act ) No.

Giri’s assessment represents the most comprehensive global database of mangrove forests ever created. It has revealed that the remaining global mangrove forests extent is only half of what is thought to have once existed (mangrove intactness and loss varies from country to country).
