TEN important facts about mangroves

* Mangroves are tropical plants and root systems that have adapted to wet loose soils, salt water, and to being periodically submerged by tidal fluctuations

*  Climate, tidal fluctuations, salt water and soil type are the four major factors that appear to limit the distribution of mangroves

* More than 50 species of mangroves are found throughout the world, three of which are native to Florida: White mangrove (Laguncularia racemosa), Red mangrove (Rhizophora mangle), and Black mangrove (Avicennia germinans) White mangrove (Laguncularia racemosa)

Mangrove root systems trap and cycle various organic materials along with chemical elements and essential nutrients in the coastal ecosystem

* Mangrove eco-systems provide a vital basic food chain resource for marine organisms

* Mangroves provide a nursery physical habitat and nursery  for a huge variety of marine organisms, several having important commercial and recreational value

* Mangroves serve as both roosting & nesting sites for a wide variety of our local bird species

* Mangroves help to serve as storm buffers, reducing wind damage and wave action, especially in sandy, shallow shoreline areas

* Mangroves are important for protecting water clarity and quality by filtering runoff while trapping sediment and debris from adjacent uplands

* Through a combination of all of the above functions, mangroves contribute significantly to the economy of several of the coastal areas of Florida.
