Abstract

The Mexican coastal area is made up of a mosaic of scenes along a coastline of ~11,200 km where estuaries and coastal lagoons represent an integral and important part with ~15,673 km2 of surface area. This contribution summarizes and integrates information from these ecosystems on the factors that explain its diversity, knowledge of environmental condition in terms of eutrophication and contamination by trace elements, and conservation efforts considering protected areas decreed and presents opportunities and challenges for research, conservation, and management. Diversity estuaries and coastal lagoons are explained by the influence of different climatic regions, geologic origins, tide conditions, precipitation rates, rates of evaporation, wind patterns, and water masses. These systems exhibit a spectrum of environmental conditions from pristine to eutrophication and pollution problems. The challenge is to establish a national program of estuaries and coastal lagoons that allows to integrate and systematize the knowledge gained as well as an agenda of research, monitoring, and management of selected and representative systems of all regions of the country, where the coastal lagoons that are already part of natural protected areas can be part of this selection.
