The word mangrove refers to the community of salt loving trees and shurbs which colonise soft muddy shores bordering protected bays, lagoons, backwaters and river estuaries. Wherever they have developed as forests, they are the.concern of forest and revenue depart- ments and in other places where their formation Has been reduced to shrubs and marshes they are considered as wasteland or derelict forests.
