Salt marshes and mangrove forests are among the most productive ecosystems globally, sequestering large quantities of carbon from the atmosphere. Salt marshes have less aboveground biomass than mangroves but both together contribute 72% of air–sea CO2 exchange of the world’s wetlands and estuaries, 34% of dissolved inorganic carbon export， and 17% of dissolved organic carbon and particulate organic carbon to the world’s coastal ocean. Their contributions are changing because mangroves are now encroaching into salt marshes (see photo) as the climate warms, forming complex ecotones. (Image courtesy of Dr. I C.
