The mangrove community: marine components
This chapter discusses the marine components of mangroves. Mangroves provide marine organisms with both a physical environment and nutrients. Pneumatophores and prop roots greatly expand the surface area available and provide a hard substrate, in contrast to the surrounding mud, while the primary production of mangroves supplies an energy source for many organisms. These marine components include algae, fauna of mangrove roots, invertebrates, molluscs, meiofauna, and fish.
