Breathing and feeding of mangrove trees
The mangrove trees have adapted to their anaerobic environment and to the poorly nutritious soils on which they grow by developing particular root systems. These allow them to recover gases directly from the atmosphere and store them to survive their immersion at high tide. Their respiration is ensured by the lenticels (slits in the bark) which cover the pneumatophores, these aerial roots in stilts, arches, ribbons or straight tubes.
