    Abstract

    Mangroves are one of the most productive natural ecosystems and form an important part of the coastal and estuarine ecosystem and are nursery ground for many organisms'. Phenols are one of the major groups of secondary metabolites in plants. Phenolic acids in soil are naturally formed during humic acid breakdown. Oilier sources in sediment are flavanoids leached from plant debris, those formed during lignin decomposition and those synthesized by soil microorganisms.
