    Mangrove formation is a tropical phenomenon confined to tropical coastal areas, and sometimes extends to sub-tropical or slightly beyond. Areas where mangroves occur include estuaries and marine shorelines. In comparison with the tropical rainforest biome which contains thousands of tree species, mangrove forests are less in diversity. But the ecosystem these trees create provides a home for a great variety of other organisms. Mangrove forests form an interface between marine and terrestrial environment.
