Mangrove

Description:

Pic 1 - a small fruit or seed, pic 2 - leaves, pic 3 - bark, pic 4 - overall pic of mangrove plant, pic 6 - small mangrove plant growing in front of this one in the sand.

Habitat:

Growing in the sand, some mud around as well, at the beach, Point Torment, Kimberley. See pic 5.

Notes:

Read this interesting paragraph: Mangroves do not belong to a single taxonomic group, rather it is the name given to a group of plants that are all adapted to live in the intertidal zone (between the average sea level and the high tide mark). Mangroves include a wide variety of species including shrubs, palms, ground ferns, climbers and grasses.
