    Abstract

    Mangroves are defined as those trees and shrubs growing between high water of spring tide and the mean sea level where the wave action is feeble (Macnae, 1968). The term mangroves is generally used for both the vegetative colonisation as well as individual species. Singh et. al. (1986) defined mangroves as characteristic littoral plant formations of tropical and subtropical protected coast lines. They are salt tolerant forest ecosystems, of tropical and subtropical intertidal regions of the world. The distribution and restriction of mangroves in the sub-tropical regions are influenced by the pattern of warm water and cold water currents. Soft mud, sand bars and protected topography of the bays, lagoons and estuaries provide shelter from wave action and thereby enhance luxuriant growth of mangrove vegetation. The geographical occurrence of the mangroves are found in the West Africa, Atlantic U.S.A., Pacific America, East Africa, Australia, Asia and Oceanica, (Krishnamurthy et.al., 1979 and Blatter, 1905).
