The Biology of Mangroves and Seagrasses

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents an introduction to mangroves and seagrasses, including their species, genera, and geographical regions. Mangroves are dicotyledonous woody shrubs or trees that are virtually confined to the tropics. They often form dense forests that dominate intertidal muddy shores, frequently consisting of virtually monospecific patches or bands. Seagrasses are monocotyledonous plants, typically with long, strap-like leaves, although in fact they are not true grasses.

Keywords:   mangroves, seagrasses, species, genera, geographical regions
