Mangroves occur in the waterlogged, salty soils of sheltered tropical and subtropical shores.
Madeline King's insight:
The World Wildlife Foundation (sponsoring organization) has updated its website and renewed its copyright as of 2013. The World Wildlife Foundation is a leading authority in the field of environmental studies and conservation work. Their biome information can be considered reliable. This website is purely informative, as education is a key goal of the foundation to promote awareness and conservation. Because of this, the website goals and the goal of this project mesh perfectly.

Madeline King's insight:

The video is current as it was posted November 30th 2011. It's relevant because it shows a visual of the mangrove swamp, giving a first hand look of the swamp and what the biome looks like. After searching for other videos this gave the absolute best first hand visual of the swamp. The video was posted on YouTube by zeekzilch. In the description on the video he says it's an airboat ride near Florida, in the town of Everglade on the edge of the Everglade National Park.

Madeline King's insight:

This article was written as a response to recent UN talks and was published this month on November 5, 2013.The information in the article is relevant to the project because it directly relates to the importance and value of the mangrove biome to humans. This source is a news article from eco-businesses.com. However, it lacks the bias typically present in media and especially newspapers; the only bias present on this site is a bias in favor of publishing environment-related articles. The accuracy of this article can be trusted because it is very straightforward, and UN officials are often quoted verbatim.
