What Are Mangroves?

Mangroves are fascinating ecosystems with a very unique shape. The term “mangrove” refers to both the individual plant as well as the ecosystem, because of how intrinsic they are to one another. Mangroves are also one of the most biologically complex and productive ecosystems in the world. They are forested areas on the coastline overcome by seawater with the ocean tides. This can be permanent or at specific times of the day. Mangrove trees’ iconic roots, which are partially above water and partially buried in the soil, have the incredible ability to extract oxygen from the highly mineral water.
