Does this refer only to a mangrove forest, or is it any wetlands area or tidal forest?

Mangrove forest
Explanation:
"Mangrove forest" is the exact translation of ป่าชายเลน. However, according to the resource I found, Thai egologists also include tidal forest in the group of ป่าชายเลน. The wetland area or tidal marsh refer to บริเวณที่มีน้ำท่วมถึง.

agree  Thanavadee: I agree that it is exact translation of that word. However, my experience with NGO dealing with Ecology, we use only Mangrove and it does include the Forest in its meaing already.
