8. Mangroves are often destroyed in the process of land development and the building of shrimp farms and ports. Provide rationale for why these plants should be protected. Please include at least three (3) pieces of evidence to support your claim. (5 points)
Weegy: Approximately 35% of mangrove area was lost during the last several decades of the 20th century (in countries for which sufficient data exist), [ which encompass about half of the area of mangroves.[50] The United Nations Environment Program also estimated shrimp farming causes a quarter of the destruction of mangrove forests.[51] Likewise, the 2010 update of the World Mangrove Atlas indicated a fifth of the world's mangrove ecosystems have been lost since 1980.[52] Grassroots efforts to save mangroves from development are becoming more popular as their benefits become more widely known. In the Bahamas, for example, active efforts to save mangroves are occurring on the islands of Bimini and Great Guana Cay. In Trinidad and Tobago as well, efforts are underway to protect a mangrove threatened by the construction of a steelmill and a port.[53] In Thailand, community management has been effective in restoring damaged mangroves.[54] Mangroves have been reported to be able to help buffer against tsunami, cyclones, and other storms. One village in Tamil Nadu was protected from tsunami destruction - the villagers in Naluvedapathy planted 80,244 saplings to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. This created a kilometre-wide belt of trees of various varieties. When the tsunami struck, much of the land around the village was flooded, but the village itself suffered minimal damage. ] (More)

Weegy: Mangroves, admittedly, are not only important but crucial for the coastal areas. Since estuarine areas are highly populated areas, the slightest ecological imbalance will take a heavy toll. They play a vital role in stabilizing these areas. [ No engineering and technological solutions can be sought for stabilizing these areas. Even if we negate all benefits of mangroves as forests, their value as "protector of shore-line" is enough to convince us for conserving them. ] (More)

Tidal waves, or tsunamis, are caused by plate movements under the ocean and displace huge amounts of water. Explain why the term "tidal wave" is a misnomer and propose a name that would be a better fit for that type of wave
Weegy: t is a misnomer because tidal wave assumes that it was caused by the tides. Tsunamis are caused by tectonic forces within the earth, not tides. [ Tsunami is a perfectly good name, but if you want another name that is better than "tidal wave" then perhaps tectonic wave would be a better name ] (More)
