Mangroves of Quiterajo
Mangroves are plants that consist of a variety of growth forms, from trees, palms, shrubs, vines, epiphytes, samphires, grasses and ferns. Mangroves form valuable ecosystems along environments. Typical mangrove habitats are periodically subjected to tidal influences. Mangroves grow in soil that is frequently waterlogged by saline water. The first explorers described them as ‘forests of the sea’ (Mastaller 1997). Mangrove Plants (Flora) refers to many plant growth forms that are associated with mangrove ecosystems including vines, grasses, shrubs, chenopods, sedges, forbs, palms, ferns and parasitic plants (Mastaller 1997).
