What is Mangrove?
- Mangrove is unique inter-tidal wetland ecosystem found in sheltered tropical and subtropical shores, which receive inputs from regular tidal flushing and from freshwater streams and rivers.
- It is characterized by high temperature, fluctuating salinity, alternating aerobic and anaerobic conditions, periodically wet and dry, unstable and shifting substratum.
- Mangrove communities are made up of taxonomically diverse groups of plants and animals, and each community has its own distinctive flora and fauna species.
