Caption: Matang Mangrove Forest, Malaysia, satellite image. North is at top. The mangroves (centre) are dark green, while agricultural fields (rectangular) are light green. Urban or cleared areas, such as the city of Taiping (upper right), are pink. Mountains and clouds (white) are seen at far right. Deep water is dark blue, while sediment-laden waters emerging from the mangrove deltas are a lighter blue. Mangrove trees are adapted to growing in salty conditions. They support a diverse variety of plants and animals. Matang Mangrove Forest is a sustainably managed mangrove forest, and the largest in peninsular Malaysia. Image obtained in visible and infrared wavelengths on 27 December 1999 by the Landsat 7 satellite. This image is around 40 kilometres across.
